University of Wisconsin Extension’s Human Resources Management Workgroup and the Center for Dairy Profitability have developed a new curriculum program to help farms and agricultural businesses cultivate better managers and owners.
This interactive series will combine a mixture of classroom presentations, facilitated participant discussions, and question-and-answer sessions. The goal is that participants learn not only from instructors, but also from each other.
The series will focus on various people skills, including communication, conflict management, trust and respect, and leadership.
The following classes are scheduled:
• Hiring the Right People and Developing a Motivated Workforce, Dec. 13 from 1 to 3 p.m.
• Strategic Leadership and On-boarding, and Reviews and Feedback, Jan. 10 from 1 to 4 p.m.
• Managing Conflict and the Farm Business Culture, Jan. 17 from 1 to 4 p.m.
All classes will be held at the Neville Public Museum, 210 Museum Place, Green Bay, Wis.
Participants may sign up for as few or as many classes as they would like. The cost to attend is $40 per person for the full series or $15 per person per class. The fee covers meeting materials and light refreshments.
This program is open to managers and owners of farms and agricultural businesses.
Developing good leaders is an integral part of the farm or agribusiness’s success and profitability. For more information regarding this program and to register for classes, contact UW Extension in Brown County by calling 920-391-4612 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
