Supervisory Skills

Bilingual supervisors should be an extremely valuable asset for companies that hire Spanish speakers, but most employers are unaware of the pressures that these individuals face. They do not realize that, in order to be effective, bilingual supervisors need a different kind of targeted support from what their English-speaking counterparts generally get. Even if supervisory skills training is translated, it almost never addresses the most difficult challenges Spanish speakers face. Did you know:

  • Spanish speakers can face bitter resentment from their former peers when promoted?
  • Typical managerial practices in Latin America tend to be much more dictatorial and less based on team-building than practices in the US?

Training for your bilingual supervisors can be provided as part of a consulting package or as a stand-alone. We also customize training to address your company’s specific needs and circumstances. Contact us now to discuss your situation and get an estimate.
