Supervisory Strategies for the Skilled Trades (SUPR 1812)

This interactive and dynamic one-day workshop is designed specifically for lead hands, shop supervisors and team leaders in trades, industries and manufacturing. Participants will acquire tools that will enable them to take a proactive approach to supervision. Our facilitator is an experienced supervisor within a variety of trades and industries, and will discuss strategies to prevent most supervisory problems. Through discussion using realistic case studies based on situations unique to the trades environment, participants will develop tactics for dealing with problems quickly and decisively when they do occur.

Most people learn supervisory skills by trial and error and have never had formal training or even the time to consider the subtleties of supervisory skills – even supervisors with years of experience have found this workshop to be worthwhile, giving it very positive and enthusiastic reviews.
