REGISTRATION DEADLINE: April 16, 2024
(Due to assessments used during this program, participants must be registered three weeks before the start of class.)
Format: Live Online
We’ve created a schedule convenient for the busy supervisor. The six modules are presented as half-day sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays over three consecutive weeks. Participants may choose the morning sessions, offered 9:00 am – noon Central Time, or the afternoon sessions, offered 1:00 – 4:00 pm Central Time.
On any given day, supervisors are challenged to build positive relationships with employees, hold them accountable, and drive business results. It’s essential that they have a strong and effective skill set and mind set to tackle issues and build on successes. Through this foundational course, participants will gain fresh insights into their role as supervisor via group discussion and opportunities for practice. They will receive job aids and resources to develop an action plan and gain the confidence to immediately apply the skills and implement the best practices they have learned through this comprehensive program.
Who Should Attend
Supervisor Training is designed for front line supervisors, warehouse supervisors, operations supervisors, foremen, and plant superintendents. Warehouse managers will also benefit.
Seats are limited. Register early, and contact Monique Combs with questions.
