NEW!  Supervisory Training!!

The Washington Growers League has been searching for a way to deliver high quality supervisory training in English and Spanish to our members. We are exploring a partnership with Archbright , an employer services organization in Seattle to provide high quality supervisory training for our members.  WGL has asked Archbright to schedule the class “Lead Worker Effectiveness" in Spanish at times and locations more suitable for our members.  These are fairly small classes and run a full day. The links for the classes are below.  We hope that these classes meet the needs of our members, and we will bring our Growers League members more supervisory classes in English and Spanish.


Leadworker Effectiveness in Spanish

Leads play a crucial role in many organizations—overseeing the daily work of the front-line employees, making sure the productivity goals are met within quality and safety standards. This can be difficult without the organizational authority that a supervisor has, so Leads must develop the power of influence to have an impact.

In Leadworker Effectiveness, Leads will learn skills they will use daily—managing their changing relationships with co-workers, establishing open communication, clearly setting expectations and giving feedback to improve performance.

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Manage relationships with non-Leads for increased teamwork and productivity
  • Use active listening techniques to increase information sharing across the team
  • Effectively set performance expectations with employees
  • Acknowledge high performers with a three-step feedback model
  • Improve substandard performance using a five-step feedback model

7 hours

Note: Leadworker Effectiveness overlaps with some of the material from our Feedback for Success and Communicating for Success courses.

Efectividad del trabajador encargado

En muchas organizaciones, los leads juegan un papel crucial al vigilar las labores diarias de los trabajadores del de primera línea, asegurándose de que se cumplan las metas de productividad dentro de los estándares de calidad y seguridad. Esto puede resultar difícil si no cuentan con la autoridad organizacional con la que cuenta el supervisor. Por esta razón, los Leads deben desarrollar el poder de la influencia y así lograr tener un impacto.
En el curso de Efectividad del trabajador encargado “Lead”, los Leads aprenderán cuáles son las destrezas que podrán usar diariamente; manejar las relaciones cambiantes con sus compañeros de trabajo, establecer vías abiertas de comunicación, establecer expectativas claras y proporcionar la retroalimentación necesaria para mejorar el desempeño.

Una vez completado el curso, los participantes podrán:

  • Manejar las relaciones con los empleados que no son leads para aumentar la productividad y el trabajo en equipo.
  • Usar técnicas de escucha activa para aumentar el intercambio de información de todo el equipo.
  • Establecer con los empleados expectativas de desempeño de manera eficaz.
  • Reconocer a las personas que muestran un alto desempeño haciendo uso de un modelo de retroalimentación de tres pasos.
  • Mejorar el desempeño deficiente usando un modelo de retroalimentación de cinco pasos.

7 horas
