AEU LEAD Announces Leadership Development Workshop for Middle Managers in San Diego

Feb 13, 2020

Please note, out of an abundance of caution around COVID-19 and with a focus on protecting the health and safety of our employees and clients we will be rescheduling this event for a date later this year. Please visit for more information. 

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, March 24 and Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at the Courtyard by Marriott San Diego Airport/Liberty Station in San Diego, Ca.

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 February 19, 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 February 20. Registration details are on the event website.
