Taking Your Supervisor Skills to the Next Level

In-person Supervisor Skills Development Course offered over four days

September 8, 15, 22 and 29th, 2021

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.
