Production and maintenance landscape foremen have unique needs as they have to
wear two hats: a worker and a leader. Foremen have to walk the fine line in working side
by side with the employee and having to direct, motivate and critique at the same time.
Managing former peers and friends can be especially difficult, dealing with problems and
obstacles can take skills that can only be developed by stepping out of the work
environment for a few days, learning best practices, applying it in a learning environment
through role play, and then going back and applying it on the job.

In this dynamic seminar, foremen will learn:

• The central role of the “worker-leader”
• How to supervise friends, peers, and former equals
• How to communicate with their superiors
• How to generate accountability from their team
• How to motivate and delegate at the same time
• How to implement and follow work schedules
• How to budget and complete jobs on time
• How to manage problem behavior
• How to produce client focused work
• And more....
