Strengthen relationships, reduce employee turnover by training manufacturing supervisors through the Training Within Industry (TWI) methodology.
TWI Job Relations training addresses common challenges faced by manufacturing supervisors: establishing and maintaining good relations with their front-line workers, and dealing with problems as they arise.
August 21 to 25 2023, 8:00am to 10:30 am daily
In this week-long program, students will be trained to use a simple, repeatable and proven methodology. Participants will gain good leadership skills and become stronger supervisors because they know how to:
- Build trust and collaboration needed for continuous improvement
- Have a consistent, coachable methodology for dealing with “people problems”
- Create an inclusive work environment; help all employees contribute to their full potential
- Better attract, train and retain employees with no manufacturing experience
What to Expect
- Session 1: Polaris MEP’s instructors will review the needs of good supervisors and introduce a Four-Step Method for good Job Relations.
- Sessions 2 through 4: The class will practice the Four-Step Method by collaborating on a case study. Participants also will review current workplace problems to see how the Four-Step Method could/should be applied to every day work.
- Session 5: Review current workplace problems and the application of the Four-Step Method. Explore how to get acceptance of TWI’s Job Relations methodology at your Rhode Island manufacturing business.
