Are you a supervisor? Do you aspire to be a manager maybe even a department head? Are you currently a supervisor, manager, department head? Being an effective leader and supervisor takes skills and knowledge, tools that very few of us are born with. Yet we often get promoted without those tools.

The Trindel Insurance Fund Leadership Supervision Training Program (L.S.T.P.) is designed to help you get those tools. L.S.T.P. courses are available to every supervisor, first line to department head throughout the year in each of the ten member counties of Trindel Insurance Fund. The topics for these courses are organized into four phases, basic to advanced, covering the knowledge and skills needed to be an effective leader and supervisor.
