Skill-Based Management Training: The Teaching Family Model Revisisted.
Baron, Richard L.; And Others
This paper provides a description of the Program Manager Workshop, a skill-based management training workshop for managers of group homes. The workshop is an extension of the Teaching-Family Model of Community Based Care, a model used in residential treatment homes for persons experiencing problems such as delinquency, retardation, mental illness, and autism. Each section of the workshop follows the format of lecture, discussion, modeling, and behavioral rehearsal. The content of various workshop sections is outlined: (1) Planning for Organizational Change; (2) Dealing with Bureaucratic Behavior; (3) Policies and Procedural Checklisting; (4) Shades of Differences; (5) Staff Meetings; (6) Equal Employment/Affirmative Action; (7) Responsive Management; (8) Problem Analysis and Decision Making; and (9) The Program Manager as a Teacher. The workshop evaluation is presented along three dimensions: participant satisfaction, skill performance, and consumer satisfaction. Evaluation data are presented which suggest participants are highly satisfied, use workshop content and have improved their skills. Other data suggest that the utilization of workshop skills results in high consumer satisfaction by supervisees. Appendices provide complete workshop descriptions, evaluation materials and other useful forms. (NRB)
