The #1 choice for HR professionals in front line leadership training in manufacturing, distribution and operations

People don’t quit bad jobs, they quit bad leaders. Your supervisors, managers and team leaders can create a culture that increases retention, engagement and productivity, or they can create a culture of apathy or hostility that drives up turnover and creates more headaches for HR to clean up.

Front line leadership doesn’t come naturally to everyone. Employees promoted from the shop floor into leadership roles often struggle with the transition. That’s where we come in.

Designed for supervisors, managers and team leaders, our 4 half-day trainings front line leadership program:

  • Equips your front line leaders with the skills they need to build a collaborative, cohesive team.
  • Helps you to create a more engaged and motivated workforce.
  • Increases employee retention and reduces turnover.
  • Empowers your organization to achieve its best ever operating results.

  • Expectations of a front line leader
  • Leader’s Vision
  • Leading by Example
