New Supervisor Immersion (NSI) Program

Effective leaders — no matter what their role — use communication, emotional intelligence, and accountability to complete work and further the interests of the organization. A program of the SoFLE, NSI is designed to enable new or aspiring supervisors to get proficiency in key areas of leadership.

Who Attends

NSI is designed for new and aspiring supervisors in the GS-9 to GS-12 levels. Cohorts are formed from students within an agency, which allows for tailoring of the experience to address the agency’s specific needs.

How it Works

NSI begins with pre-assessments and an orientation. The program also begins and ends with a three-day in-classroom session to foster social and collaborative bonds within the cohort. In between, learners attend virtual, instructor-led classes; work on projects in groups; and receive individualized feedback from a variety of facilitators, peers, and mentors.
