AEU LEAD Announces Leadership Development Workshop for Middle Managers in Chesapeake

Mar 9, 2020

AEU LEAD, a management consulting and developmental training organization for labor-intensive industries, announced a workshop that helps middle managers and front-line supervisors effectively lead and communicate with direct reports.

The event will be held Tuesday, May 12 and Wednesday, May 13, 2020 at the Delta Hotels Marriott Chesapeake in Chesapeake, VA.

Conducted by Joe White of AEU LEAD over a day and a half, the workshop will provide front-line supervisors, foremen, crew leads and middle managers practical tools and guidance on topics including:

  • Earning respect
  • Building rapport and credibility
  • Driving employee engagement
  • Showing value and appreciation
  • Giving and receiving feedback
  • Gain buy-in, support, and commitment from direct reports

“People are usually hired or promoted into management roles because of their technical skills – not necessarily leadership skills,” said White. "Our workshops are actionable, practical, and relevant because they are based on real-world experiences in similar industries. We speak their language, so participants understand the concepts and can start making an impact right away.”

The workshop is limited to 20 participants. Through April 7, 2020, the registration fee for the event is $450 which includes the workshop, course materials, and meals (breakfast both days and lunch on Tuesday). The registration fee increases to $550 on April 8. Registration details are on the event website.
