2019 Leadership Training Series: Leading at the Front Line: A Workshop Series for New Leaders

You’ve just promoted your best employee be the lead in his/her work area. You want that person to succeed, but being successful as a lead requires a whole new set of skills that have little to do with being a great machinist, assembler, purchasing clerk, or any other kind of worker. This specially-designed series ensures that your new leaders can apply a good toolbox of basic skills to make them effective in their first role as a leader.
