The nature of agriculture is that farmers and ranchers seek practical solutions that make multiple uses of limited resources. This is true of all the assets of a farm business, including its human assets. Very often, a farmer or rancher will turn to a trusted, long-term employee with whom he can communicate well when that farmer or rancher needs a manager, supervisor, “lead person” or foreman. While that person may have an excellent understanding of how the farm business operates and how to cultivate the commodity or manage pesticide applications or irrigation systems, that person may not be well equipped for the “human” side of management – management of human resources and relating effectively to employees. This can be particularly problematic if that new manager used to be a line employee, or if he or she is supervising workers who were formerly colleagues.
Supervisor Boot Camp is designed to help both new and experienced supervisors.Each participant will receive a certificate at the end of the day. Register now, space is limited!
