Management & Leadership Training Programs

These courses are recommended for managers who are in leadership positions and for exceptional employees being groomed for advancement.

Leadership training for mid-level and first-line supervisors includes Exceptional Customer Service, Effective Supervision, Stress Management Strategies, Time Management, Quality Control, Making Meetings Work, Teamwork, Project Management, and Interpersonal Skills.

Exceptional Customer Service

Customer service training programs are completely customized to meet the needs and goals of each organization. We emphasize communication skills and the role and importance of the customer. Training techniques frequently include the use of video-taped interviews with actual customers, and "good service / bad service" videos featuring employees and customers. Customer service surveys may also be used to gauge and demonstrate customer satisfaction.

Actual training time is generally between 2 & 4 hours, which includes use of custom videos prepared for the individual organization and interactive group discussion. Large classes can be accommodated, providing proper audio-visual equipment is available.

Effective Supervision

Many supervisors receive little or no training prior to being promoted to a critical role within the organization. This customized and highly interactive workshop allows participants to explore the nature of leadership. Team dynamics, communication skills, conflict resolution, situational leadership, motivation and morale, reward and recognition, performance counseling and the leader's responsibility for workplace stress are typically examined. Values and ethics are stressed throughout. Techniques are presented and practiced in thought-provoking and memorable exercises.

Recommended class length 12 - 20 hours. Groups of 8 - 15 are suggested. Individuals who attend this class should not enroll in Teamwork or Interpersonal Skills class.

Strategies for Managing Stress

Life is a process of adapting to the positive and negative situations around us. This workshop is designed to help participants further develop these adaptive skills. It provides ideas and techniques for changing one's outlook when it's not possible to change the world around us. It encourages individuals to start taking charge of their reactions to people and situations in order to relieve and reduce the stress in their lives. We emphasize the value of effective communication skills through supplemental exercises.

Recommended class length: 4 hours. Group of 8 - 15 are suggested.

Introduction to Quality Control

This problem solving course is an excellent precursor to Statistical Process Control training. Topics include flowcharting, brainstorming, cause & effect diagrams, affinity diagrams, activity network diagrams, run-charts, and other tools. Team-oriented problem solving methodology is also included. Problem solving teams address actual company-specific problems.

Recommended class length 8 - 16 hours. Groups of 8 - 12 are suggested. If SPC is being taught, it is recommended that this course be taken prior to SPC.

Making Meetings Work

This course is designed for managers, supervisors, and team members who lead or facilitate meetings. We explore the true cost of meetings and techniques for improving results and reducing time spent in meetings are discussed and practiced. Topics include getting people to speak up, keeping everyone on the main point, solving problems, effectively, resolving conflict, and making sure things get done. By the end of the course participants will have developed their own set of meeting guidelines for their organization.

Recommended class length: 4 hours. Groups of 8 - 15 are suggested.

Managing Projects

This course explores and develops the skills necessary to successfully manage projects. In addition to technical and operational skills, step-by-step procedures are taught and practiced.
