Many manufacturing employees are promoted from operators to lead and supervisor positions but are not given / taught the soft skills to succeed. Sometimes the result is not only the loss of a good operator by moving them into the leadership role, but if that employee struggles in their new role it can cause dissatisfaction for that employee and the employees who they are responsible for leading. Ultimately that can lead to employee turnover.

This program will consist of 7 essential classes for new leaders. The course will be delivered in 4 hour increments, one-time per month, February - August, 2023. The topics are listed below along with class dates. To view the course descriptions download the flyer using the link below.
