The Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association (WCMA) recently opened registration for its popular Front-Line Supervisor Trainings. The classes are slated to begin in early 2019, and are offered in partnership with Madison College, providing high-quality, low-cost opportunities for industry employers to train and retain valued workers.
“Teaching supervisors ‘soft skills’ has a huge impact on employee retention rates,” said Rebekah Sweeney, Communications, Education, and Policy Director, in a press release. “With the right training, these front-line leaders have the power to reduce conflict, increase positive communication, and foster a greater sense of belonging in a workplace.”
According to that press release, WCMA will offer Front-Line Supervisor Training Parts A, B, and C. Part A will focus on leadership essentials such as decision making and problem solving, and takes place on February 12 in Madison. Part B explores the impact of emotional intelligence, coaching, and performance feedback, and will be held on Tuesday, March 12—also in Madison. Part C focuses on personal productivity and managing workplace stress, and will be held in two locations: at Chippewa Valley Technical College’s Gateway Campus in Eau Claire on Tuesday, March 26, and in Madison on Tuesday, April 9.
WCMA noted that the classes, particularly those offered in Madison, sell out quickly due to the fact that they are capped out at 22 participants. The classes are offered à la carte, and can be taken in any order. Tuition costs $129 per participant for courses hosted in Madison, and $159 for courses offered in other locations. Materials, instruction, and meals are included.
