TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT SERIES

In January 2021, 18 first-line supervisors from five employers attended the first cohort of a leadership training program customized for the agribusiness industry. We received overwhelmingly positive feedback on this program offered in partnership with Right Management. Registration is now open for the next session!

​ 

The 12-hour Management Foundations series focuses on building the capabilities required of effective managers. Topics will be discussed from the perspective of experienced managers. Activities and discussions will focus on how to apply the skills in real-world situations, practice with current examples, and receive feedback and coaching.

 

Each manager will leave with an individual action plan for applying skills developed throughout training.  

Topics covered will include: ​

  • ​Creating a Positive Team Culture. 

  • Communication Skills for Managers. 

  • Transforming Conflict to Collaboration. 

  • Feedback and Coaching in the Digital Economy. 

  • Problem Solving for Managers.​ 

 

The program will be provided in two sessions: 

  • In-person session: May 11, 2022, from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. with a break for lunch from 12-12:30 p.m. Lunch is not provided. 

  • Virtual session: May 25, 2022, from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m.

  • Registration deadline is March 23.* 

  • Program fee is $1,165 per person.  

  • The tentative location for the in-person session is:

Kent/MSU Grand Ideas Garden

775 Ball Ave NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49503
