As a professional consultant, several times a week I get this basic question: Do you know of any good tool and die makers / engineers looking for a job? The answer is typically no. “How about press operators”? We just can’t seem to find anybody to fill our open positions!” If we do get lucky enough to find someone, after we train them and get them up to speed…. they leave! This short 4 hr. session broken up into two separate 2 hr. sessions, will focus on the key communication and leadership principles that will help you to develop a culture that attracts and retains effective, productive employees. In addition, it will show you effective ways of positively motivating, encouraging and maximizing individual and team potential.
Session 1 : Tuesday, October 11th
Session 2 : Wednesday, October 12th
*Each session will go from 9AM – 11AM CST
- Looking for employees versus attracting /luring employees
- Choosing the employee bait
- More money?
- Leadership models
