Dear Colleague,

Happy New Year! Did you make any resolutions this year, either personal or professional? If you set goals, how do you plan on reaching those? Setting a strategy to achieve your goals is vital in both your home and work life. An article by Ron Carson in Forbes offers a five-step plan to keep your goals on track. Some of these steps include documenting your goals, reflecting on the importance of your goals and establishing a reasonable time frame to accomplish them.

As you are setting your goals and planning for 2019, remember to consider leadership and management development!

It is beneficial to plan ahead and reserve seats now. Contact Rebecca to set up a leadership development planning meeting to talk about your organizations’ needs. View our 2019 Calendar here!

Upcoming Forums:

SOTDateDue to increasing popularity, this year we are offering three cohorts of the Supervisors Forum! The first cohort will take place in St. Cloud on February 5, 12, 19 and 26. This forum is designed for those who want to enhance their supervisory skills to be more effective leaders of other people. In each session, participants will learn a variety of skills, and use role play and application exercises to practice how and when to utilize behaviors for maximum effectiveness within their organization.

EF2019The Operations Forum is designed for senior and mid-level managers responsible in whole, or in part, for operations, process improvement and/or supply chain functions. This three-day forum is a comprehensive program for analyzing all aspects of operations, including processes, supply chain, quality control and lean management. Participants will walk away with tools and an application plan.

EF2019The 7 Habits for Managers Forum is ideally suited for managers of processes, teams, departments, divisions and business units. The forum is designed to equip today’s managers with the tools needed to lead teams, overcome interpersonal and organizational challenges, manage and enhance team member performance and produce superior and lasting results.

Please call me at 320.251.5420, or email me if you have any questions or would like to learn more about our upcoming forums.

I look forward to hearing from you!
