CIPM Sri Lanka – one of the nation’s leaders in human resource management, recently conducted its three-day Supervisory Development Program which has been designed to provide a sound working knowledge of supervisory management and enhance leadership skills. The program is a signature workshop of CIPM’s Corporate Training Division and was conducted at CIPM Head Office ‘HR House’ in Colombo-5. 

The program was facilitated through Senaka Muhandiramge and Sarath Jayasinghe who are experienced HR, employee engagement and business-related resource personnel. Over 25 supervisory level staff representing leading companies in the corporate and public sectors, and NGOs participated in the first CIPM three-day Supervisory Development Program.       

“Supervisory level staff plays a significant role in the effective management of an organisation. Proper leadership and motivational skills at this level have far-reaching effects on overall efficiency and effectiveness. A well-trained supervisory level in an organisation will be the starting point for the empowerment of the frontline in order to be a responsive company,” said CIPM Sri Lanka President Dhammika Fernando.   

The CIPM Supervisory Development Program aims to enhance and strengthen the capabilities of frontline management and ensure that they gain the skills, knowledge, and competencies to effectively lead, engage and develop their teams, and face challenges of the business on a day to day basis. The program focuses on two critical areas for the enhancement of overall capabilities in the sphere of Supervisory, Management, and Leadership, with an emphasis on motivation and decision making.

Some of the modules in the CIPM Supervisory Development Program are discussions and lectures on essential responsibilities and supervisory roles, planning and organising work, personalities and developing a positive attitude, leadership skills, decision making, communication, interpersonal and influencing skills, employee motivation and strategic goal setting.       

At the end of the workshop, all participants who duly completed the program were awarded CIPM certificates.

CIPM has planned to conduct Supervisory Development and Managerial Development Programs in the outstations i.e. Wellawaya, Kurunegala, Kandy, Matara, and Jaffna.
