Foreman Leadership Certificate Program


Course Overview

The electric utility industry of the 22nd century will look much different than it does today. With the changes in workforce and new technology comes the need for new technical job skills as well as the skills needed to coach, motivate, and inspire crew members. This course is designed to prepare new and future foremen, crew leaders, and others in supervisory capacities for the challenges of effective leadership in an environment that includes a new generation of workers with different frames of reference toward employers and the workplace. Participants will gain insight into what people respect in leaders and how to develop their own unique leadership style. Being able to resolve conflicts, manage performance and attitude issues, and then build up the team are skills that are no longer nice to have but are now essential in this ever-changing environment.

This course is part one of a two-part accelerated course and covers most of the modules in the full Foreman Leadership Certificate Program. This program is specifically designed to be taken as two three-day sessions.
