WCMA Opens Registration for Supervisor Trainings in Early 2019

Posted By: Rebekah Sweeney WCMA News,

MADISON, WI – The Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association (WCMA) today opened registration for its popular Front-Line Supervisor Trainings now set for early 2019.  The classes, offered in partnership with Madison College, are high-quality, low cost opportunities for industry employers not only to train, but also to retain their most valued workers.

“Teaching supervisors ‘soft skills’ has a huge impact on employee retention rates,” said Rebekah Sweeney, WCMA Communications, Education, and Policy Director.  “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.”

WCMA will offer Front-Line Supervisor Training-Part A, focused on leadership essentials, including decision making and problem solving on Tuesday, February 12 in Madison.  Front-Line Supervisor Training-Part B, which explores the impact of emotional intelligence, coaching, and performance feedback, will be held on Tuesday, March 12, also in Madison.  WCMA will offer Front-Line Supervisor Training-Part C, focused on personal productivity and managing workplace stress, 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.

Note that classes – particularly those offered in Madison – sell out quickly, as they are capped at 22 participants.  The classes that make up WCMA’s Front-Line Supervisor Training are offered à la carte, and can be taken in any order.  Tuition costs just $129 per participant for courses hosted in Madison, and $159 for courses offered in other locations (most commonly, Eau Claire).  Materials, instruction, and meals are included.
