Training on Supervision: Enhancing the Supervisor’s Capability in Mentoring/Coaching

The three day, live-out training aims to enhance the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of middle level supervisors in providing the needed support to improve the functioning of the supervisees. The focus is on making them proactive in intervening when there are performance gaps among the supervisees and systematically and purposively providing opportunities for their growth in their work.

Mentoring is an important task of the supervisor. However, his/her administrative responsibilities usually take precedence over upgrading the supervisee’s performance. Coaching is guiding and instructing an employee on how to do a job so that it satisfies performance goals. On the other hand, mentoring is providing guidance, advice, and encouragement through an ongoing one-on-one work relationship (Samuel Certo, Supervision, 2006)

Engaging in Advocacy Work, an Essential Skill for Social Development Practitioners
Poverty, as it exists at present, is an effect of the country’s economic, socio-political landscape. A significant segment of the Philippine population is still suffering from deprivation of their basic needs and from inadequacy of essential programs and services that they can avail of. Bringing about positive changes in the lives of these marginalized sectors should be a concerted effort among government executives, planners, legislators, the civil society and the people. Being in touch with people who have less in life, it is the central role of social development workers to help awaken the various abovementioned actors to the issues affecting their locale and move them into action.

This particular training acknowledges the ever changing situation that the Philippines is contending with which social development workers should be sensitive about and face in order to be effective in uplifting the lives of the people they assist. This activity is significant because it recognizes the critical role of the social development worker in building/enhancing the awareness of the people, legislators, executives and planners and concretizing action to address important issues at the local and national levels. It aims to enhance their capabilities to be proactive and purposive in involving the community and other stakeholders in dealing with problems and issues.
Mindful of the varying levels of experiences of social development practitioners and the backdrop from where they originate, the training methodologies will be interactive and experiential. The realities of the social development workers in their field settings will be considered.
