Manager Training

In an effort to bring some industry related posts back to the forum, what training do you expect your Plant Managers to have and/or go through? Anything annually? I ask because our Plant Manger has been with the company over 20 years, and while he's very knowledgeable of our business we struggle with the same problems year after year and I'm trying to identify ways to help him.

We've sent him to a few Fred Prior seminars over the years, but they don't seem to have helped, whereas Dale Carnegie training has helped out Sales Staff understand the sales cycle and customers better.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

    Hi YensidJDG,

    Thanks for your commitment to the Pallet Board. We are getting ready to install a new version of the software that should help us eliminate or reduce SPAM. We are going to try to revive the Board.

    As far as your question, what are the issues that you want help with for your plant management staff? Which of the following most need to be addressed: lean manufacturing, safety best practices, employee motivation strategies, cross cultural communication, ISPM-15 procedures, maintenance and PM, nailing operation, sawmill operation, etc.

    That will help others know how to help.

    Thanks for your contribution to the Pallet Board.

    Chaille:
     
    Great job bringing the Board back, I checked every couple weeks since my post and it was offline.  I was pleased when the Board loaded today instead of the SQL error page.
     
    I didn't have a particular area in mind, e.g. Lean or Motivation, I was looking for ideas from others as to what they do for training, if anything.  My Plant Manager started with the company straight out of High School and has worked his way up to his present position.  He's never had any formal training, he's never worked out side of our company, he's just learned as he goes.  Now that his son has joined the company, and is starting down the same path I want to try to avoid the same pains.
     
    I was also just trying to spur productive conversation and get everybody chatting like we used to.  I really miss the days of Sherman, Thoughtful and Freddie.

    Personally anything on leadership has been a benefit. Maybe encourage him to start reading. I have been recommending Extreme Ownership by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin.  It's a great hard hitting book with enough story line to keep someone interested. The audiobook is my favorite.
     
    Nice to see the board alive. I had pretty much wrote it off.

    Good questions on the management training, we don't have a formal program but continuing to engage staff and management is critical to the success of any business

    Thanks for the links.  One podcast I came across is the Friction Podcast by Bob Sutton, I'm really enjoying it.  It has provided some unique insight into group dynamics and interpersonal relationships.  I highly recommend everybody check this one out.
