Moving out of labor and into management involves a change—from working with tools and objects to working with people and data. The change involves far more than just a shift in location and the tools they use. They are literally looking at a new craft, or trade and need to treat it as such. However, development as a manager is different than development as a trades-person.
Participants will learn:
- Their job title does not determine their success
- What it really means to be a supervisor or manager, no matter the industry
- How to prepare, develop, and support your managers and supervisors
- That the next level of success requires the next level of discipline
- The essential elements of a successful manager or supervisor
- About the special case of the working supervisor
- That what got a person the position isn’t enough to keep the position
- To understand the term “communication” and how essential it is
- To understand what the phrase “safety begins with leadership” really means and tools to help them achieve that
