Leads, supervisors and mid-level managers in many companies are often thrust into their positions without any formal management training. When they find the job completely different from their previous assignment, many struggle to keep pace. It isn't that the new supervisor or manager is incapable of the task, it's just the new job is so different than before and there was no one there to show them the way.

Unfortunately, a typical scenario for many companies is as follows:

  1. Star employee is promoted to new supervisor position as reward for performance and loyalty.
  2. New supervisor is told there is no formal training program (OJT) and doesn't fully understand his or her new job duties.
  3. New supervisor struggles with the job and knows it isn't going well.
  4. Supervisor is demoted, or worse yet, is fired for non-performance.
  5. Employer just lost an outstanding performer and it is the Company's own fault.

But...there is a happy ending to this story!

With training, the new supervisor can walk through the theory and the practical applications of managing employees. The new skills learned will allow the lead, supervisor or manager to reach his or her full potential with immediate results. It isn't that the new manager doesn't care it's that he/she doesn't know. That is what training is all about teaching people who want to know but don't.

How Workshops Are Conducted    

As the workshop leader, Paul Schaber uses an interactive style of instruction. He isn't a lecturer nor is he one who simply recites what you can read on your own. He asks questions, provides examples, uses videos and other media presentations, uses humor and whit to make a point and always gets individuals to participate in their learning. When finished, participants will know what to do and how to do it.
