Earn a certificate while learning how effectively setting goals can help leaders AND employees improve outcomes.

A New Year typically rings in with new personal resolutions and professional goals. In 2023, Rhode Island manufacturing managers and supervisors can improve their outcomes by learning how to track and evaluate with SMART goals.

This course will show the positive effect of shifting the traditional role of planner and evaluator from the leader, to a shared responsibility between leader and employee. This shift builds employee ownership, and allows the leader to focus on coaching and developing throughout the performance cycle. Leaders will experience how to use effective SMART goals to help them and their employees track progress and fairly evaluate outcomes. A well-written performance plan is also a powerful tool for leaders to use when determining where to focus their development and coaching discussions with their employees.

Enroll leaders in this positive workshop to develop management skills that align performance for success.


This is a highly-interactive course that helps leaders

  • Ensure direct reports take a more active role in managing their performance.
  • Manage performance on an ongoing basis while working within the organization’s time parameters for goal setting and performance reviews.
  • Provide the ongoing coaching and feedback your direct reports need to achieve their goals.
  • Increase your direct reports’ confidence and commitment to their own success.

Taught by an experienced manufacturing leader who ensures best practices can be aplied to real-world manufacturing settings.


Managers, supervisors at RI manufacturing companies, especially those who are:
• New to a management role
• Aspiring to move into a management position
• Eager to improve leadership skills
