New Program at Moravian to Focus on Improving Supervisory Instruction

Improving the quality of supervisory instruction is the focus of a new program in the Institute for Professional Development at Moravian College. The College is partnering with RCC Associates and Dick Cipoletti to deliver an educationally sound supervisory program to area businesses. The program will included instruction in individual assessment, an individual development plan for each participating company, a comprehensive curriculum, and private coaching between sessions. Training in problem solving and leadership building is conducted over a ten-month period on the Moravian College campus, beginning January 18, 2000, and continuing every third Tuesday morning for the following nine months. Participants will be drawn from a variety of business environments to provide a heady mix of insights and problems-solving strategies.

Key topics include role requirements for supervisors, strategies for enhancing productivity and communication, motivational techniques, team-building and coaching, decision-making, discipline and reward systems, and managing change. During the ten-month period each participant will have four private coaching sessions with Dick Cipoletti to monitor progress.

Leading the sessions will be Dick Cipoletti, president of RCC Associates, a regional consulting firm. Dick brings a wealth of experience as practitioner and trainer both locally and nationally. Moravian College’s Division of Continuing Studies has a long-standing reputation for supplying educationally sound programs to working adults in the Lehigh Valley.
