I'm Hugh Alley, the president of First Line Training. 

Some people think that you can get by with a supervisor who isn't well trained. It is actually a very expensive decision. 

It turns out that the supervisor's salary is the smallest part of the cost. Consider these typical situations:

  • The untrained supervisor who doesn't make improvements to the work processes - improvements that could have given you tens of thousands of dollars in additional profit every year. 
  • Untrained supervisors who don't address performance issues in their crews. Yet one effective intervention can increase an employee's productivity by 50% or more.
  • Or think of the untrained supervisors who don't know how to prevent mistakes that happen again and again and again. And with many mistakes costing $500 or more, it can cost you a bundle.

It all adds up; poor supervisory skills can cost you $100,000 or more per year. Per supervisor!

What can you do?

  • Conventional training doesn't seem to make much difference in people's behaviour.
  • Constant reminders and nagging just create frustration.
  • Simply getting rid of people who don't perform is unlikely to change the situation and is very expensive. 
  • Doing nothing is not an option because your competitors are working to improve right now.  

As an Operations Manager, that was my experience. I tried all these strategies without success. Then I found a way to develop my supervisors and leads, called Training Within Industry.

This proven program resulted in better productivity, better safety, better on-time performance and significantly less waste. Since the programs are so well designed, they are easy to learn and easy to implement.

What I liked best was that these programs focus on the four core skills that every supervisor must master:

  1. deal with performance issues
  2. train their team in new skills
  3. make the work processes easier, faster, and more accurate; and
  4. set work priorities.

Your supervisors will learn these skills at our UNCOMMON SUPERVISORY LEADERSHIP program this April 30 - May 4.  Five half days of highly-effective instruction combined with carefully designed "homework" and an unusual but effective follow-up program will result in new behaviour and noticeable results for your supervisors.

This introductory program is ideal for new supervisors, for supervisors who are struggling, or for experienced supervisors who have never had any formal training. 

Click Here to get our flyer and to register for the course. The cost is only $1,150 per person, but most supervisors make enough improvements to pay for the program in months. And if you register before April 16, 2012, we'll take $100 off, so you can send your supervisor for only $1,050.

Here are a few examples of achievements of supervisors who have taken our programs:

  • reduced the time to complete a large assembly operation from 3 1/2 hours to 2 hours without any investment
  • reduced a drilling operation from 10 minutes to 6 minutes
  • reduced the time to prepare for training by 25% with better training materials at the end
  • reduced the error rate in a shop by 20 - 25% without spending a penny
  • increased the productivity of a problem individual by over 50%

If these sound like the kinds of results you need from your supervisor, you can register for the course Click Here.

We look forward to helping you improve your operations.

Yours, for better supervision

Hugh Alley, President
