AEU LEAD Announces Leadership Development Workshop for Middle Managers in New Orleans

Nov 22, 2019

Interactive workshop will teach front-line supervisors and managers how to influence and motivate direct reports

MOBILE, Ala. – 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, January 21 and Wednesday, January 22, 2020 at the Marriott Metairie Lakeway in Metairie, La.

Conducted by Joe White and Woody Collins 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 December 15, 2019, 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 December 16. Registration details are on the event website.
