“Leadership Skills for the Front-Line Manager” will be held on every Tuesday from March 4 through April 29, except for March 18.

Co-sponsored by Georgia Southern’s College of Business Administration and the University’s Continuing Education Center, the course has previously trained managers and supervisors from such varying fields as manufacturing, distribution, hospitality, transportation, health care and government.

The registration fee is $600 per participant, with a corporate discount rate of $550 per person for four or more people from the same organization. The deadline is Feb. 29. To sign up, visit or call (912) 681-5551.
