Two Great Fall Training Opportunities from the Business and Manufacturing Leadership Institute

Two Great Training Opportunities…Registration Deadline is November 5th!
Personal Empowerment – Only $149.00 per person ($74.50 for qualifying companies/individuals)
Quality 101 – Only $199.00 per person ($99.50 for qualifying companies/individuals)


Personal Empowerment: Taking Initiative November 21, 2013 / 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. / SLCC Miller Campus / Cost: $149.00
If people see empowerment as something that is given to them, they will miss out on opportunities to take responsibility for action, or to take initiative to solve problems, improve processes, and give your company a competitive edge.
This course seeks to change the mind-set that empowerment is something that is given. It helps employees see that they can and should look for improvement opportunities.
Common leadership challenges within organizations: • Do people in your organization hesitate to suggest ways to improve work processes or to take prompt action when issues surface? • Do people who aren’t the “leader” call a meeting to discu…

Great Training Opportunity…Registration Deadline is October 25th!

The curriculum will focus on the eight “wastes” in the workplace (Defects, Overproduction, Motion, Waiting, Over-processing, Inventory, Transportation, and Non-Utilized Talents) and provide students with the tools required to make improvements. Class instruction is expected to yield immediate results when students return to the workplace with an understanding of “waste” and how to eliminate it from working environments.

Cost: $199.00 (only $99.50 for qualifying companies and individuals).
