What do manufacturing-line workers, resort hotel front-desk staff, and telephone company installers have in common? Like the majority of American workers, one person has a powerful impact on their job productivity — their direct manager or supervisor.
“Leadership Skills for the Front-Line Manager” training is the productivity-solution Georgia Southern University recommends. For the past decade, the University’s Continuing Education Center has offered its eight-week short course of that name in Savannah, training team-leaders from fields as varied as manufacturing, distribution, hospitality, transportation, health care and the government.
Starting Sept. 16, this fall’s “Leadership Skills” course runs 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. every Thursday through Nov. 4 at the Coastal Georgia Center in Savannah. Each class session covers one topic, such as communication skills, the law on employee management, or effective methods of coaching employees to greater productivity.
The $625 fee includes materials and light refreshments for the 32-hour course. Firms registering four or more employees qualify for the corporate discount rate of $575 each.
To register, call (912) 478-1763 or visit http://ceps.georgiasouthern.edu/conted. Registration closes at Sept. 8 at 5 p.m.
