Successful businesses know the importance of investing in high performing employees and moving them into leadership roles within the company, but few business owners actually know how to develop leaders. Region 10’s Small Business Resource Center is hosting a three-day leadership training on Thursday and Friday, April 13th-14th and Friday, April 21st. The training will take place at Region 10’s office, located at 300 Cascade Avenue in Montrose. The cost is $395.
Leader Effectiveness Training (L.E.T.) is for businesses looking to develop individuals and more engaged, high performing teams. Created by the Gordon Training International, this training will show managers how to increase personal and team productivity, spend less time on “people issues”, and dramatically increase team collaboration. Companies cited on “Best Places to Work” lists like Fortune 100 companies and best places to work in Colorado use this training as a foundation for great employer/employee relations.
“This training is essential for managers,” said certified L.E.T. trainer and human resources consultant Dave Knutson, who has been facilitating L.E.T. trainings for 25 years. “It builds strong working relationships and reduces employee turnover… because people don’t leave companies, they leave bad managers,” he added.
Participants will learn how to:
- Clearly identify problem ownership;
- Apply active listening skills to create effective solutions;
- Avoid communication roadblocks that interfere with problem solving;
- Practice constructive confrontation that results in lasting behavior changes; and
- Recognize approaches to conflict and apply true win-win approaches.
Knutson brings 30 years of leadership consulting, coaching, and training in the private, nonprofit, and local government sectors. Designated the Human Resources Professional of the Year by the Western Colorado Human Resources Association, he has also been awarded the Pinnacle Award, The Society of Human Resource Management’s highest level of recognition in the profession, and the national Workforce Readiness Award.
“While Region 10’s Small Business Resource Center provides consulting services and training opportunities for small businesses, it is our goal to expand services by providing second-stage and growth businesses with access to essential trainings that only larger, more established businesses have access to. L.E.T. is one of those opportunities,” said Nancy Murphy, director of small business development. “We’re thrilled to be able to offer training of this caliber at this price to area businesses.”
Normally priced at $1695, this training is available for only $395. Limited space is available. To register, go to https://r10-let.eventbrite.com. For more information about the workshop, contact Nancy Murphy 970-765-3130 or firstname.lastname@example.org
