Foreman Leadership Certificate Program Part 1

September 19 - September 21, 2023 150 Cooperative Way, Huntley, MT, USA

“People learn nothing when they’re asleep, and very little when they’re bored," John Cleese.

The Foreman Leadership Skills Program is designed to support the development of skills needed to lead operations crews in the electric utility industry. Activities, both inside and outside, reinforce the learning and provide practice. The activities also keep the participants engaged and energized during the long program days. The program consists of two two-and-a-half-day sessions; the sessions can be taken 2 to 12 months apart but must be taken in order.

Day one focuses on the success factors of a foreman. What do the best foremen do, or have, that makes them the best leaders in their field? Small group discussions about these factors will prepare the group for areas of focus for the next few days. Scenarios, developed from real utility situations, are introduced as case studies. We will use the Myers Briggs Type Indicator to help you see your preferential style and way of working, and the styles of others who may prefer something completely different.

Day two addresses going from buddy to boss and safety culture. How does this job change the relationship with your crew (who may also be your fishing buddies)? Group discussion, activities, and use of scenarios help with learning. We’ll also identify the most critical values that a foreman must have to rely on others and be relied upon. What is required to safely send your crew home at the end of each shift?

Day three is a recap. Various challenges will be put on the teams to build strength in adapting to changes, and pay attention to your leadership decisions, even in the midst of competition.
