   Taking Your Supervisor Skills to the Next Level

In-person Supervisor Skills Development Course offered over four days

September 9, 16, 23 and 30th, 2021 – Bridgewood Resort – Neenah

Good leadership is not just characterized by the ability to motivate a group toward a common goal-it’s the ability to cross over from being a person employees HAVE to follow, to a person employees WANT to follow. Our Supervisor Skills course will help develop and refresh your skills as a leader and offer a renewed outlook on true relational leadership.

Companies are demanding more from their supervisors while promoting younger, less experienced leaders. Combine that with an influx of a younger, independent workforce; It is necessary for manufacturers to provide skills necessary to better communicate, motivate, and/or otherwise enhance supervisor skill sets.

Leaders maximize results by earning the respect of those they lead, reducing opposition from followers, and enlisting buy-in from their teams.

After attending this course, learners will recognize the tools needed to enhance their abilities as a supervisor.

The learner will be able to:

  • Modify their own personal leadership style for more effectiveness
  • Better relate to subordinates, peers and superiors based on the behavioral characteristics of all
  • Apply listening and communication skills to enhance information flow and increase department effectiveness and efficiency
  • Apply good time management principles to maximize available time by setting priorities

Join us for this four day workshop to learn how to enhance your skills and fill the gap with leadership development.

Cost:  $975 per person.  Continental breakfast, lunch and beverage breaks provided daily.
