WCMA News,

The popular Front-Line Leadership Training for dairy industry team leaders returns with three virtual modules in the spring of 2021. Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association (WCMA) opened online registration this week.

“Today’s front-line teams face pressure to reach increased productivity goals amid key challenges such as labor shortages and ever-changing safety protocols,” said Rebekah Sweeney, WCMA Communications, Education and Policy Director. “Never have strong leaders been more essential in dairy processing plants – and WCMA is proud to deliver training to support and develop your most valued staff."

All WCMA Front-Line Leadership Trainings will be offered online in spring 2021 via a digital platform facilitating small group and partner discussions, interactive polling features and participant chat.

“While we look forward to getting back to a classroom, we’ve found great success in engaging with members’ employees online. Participants in our fall trainings, which were offered remotely, reported high satisfaction rates – giving the classes a score of nearly 10 out of 10,” said Sweeney.

WCMA Front-Line Leadership Training – Part A, which offers a self-assessment on essential leadership skills and practical methods for improvement, will be held on Tuesday, February 23. Part B is set for Thursday, March 18, and will focus on ways to positively assess and impact staff performance. Part C focuses on how to build a team, and will be held Thursday, April 15.

Classes are limited to 22 participants. They are offered à la carte, and may be taken in any order. Tuition for each course is $135 per person.
