The initiative was met with enthusiasm by supervisors and direct line staff alike. We now have a comprehensive plan to focus on supervisory professional development, which has been endorsed by both senior leadership and middle management staff and communicated to all levels of the agency. This has resulted in a range of very significant outcomes, including increased job satisfaction for supervisors and staff, greater understanding of the supervisor’s role in the agency, and increased collegiality and learning amongst supervisors. We would highly recommend this initiative and training to other child agencies.
