RTEC workshop focuses on communication strategies
A half-day workshop designed to help new leaders and supervisors improve their communication skills, will be presented by the Regional Technical Education Center (RTEC) in Yankton, Vermillion and Mitchell during the month of September.

"Communication Strategies" will be held at RTEC in Yankton on Tuesday, Sept. 12; at the Vermillion Area Chamber of Commerce in Vermillion on Wednesday, Sept. 13; and at Mitchell Technical Institute's new Technology Center in Mitchell on Friday, Sept. 15. A morning session from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and an afternoon session from 1 to 4:30 p.m. will be available at each location. Cost is only $49 per attendee.

Offered in association with S.M.A.R.T. Training and Mitchell Technical Institute, the workshop marks the third in a series of five that have been designed especially for new leaders and supervisors. Like the "Making the Transition" and "Guiding Performance" workshops, it will feature Tom Hausmann and will focus on delivering training that is Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-Bound.

During "Communication Strategies," Hausmann will share startling statistics about the top reasons people leave their jobs as he tries help new leaders realize just how critical effective communication is to success.

He'll explain why they – as supervisors – have a greater impact on the attitudes, growth, development and satisfaction of employees than any other person in the company.

Hausmann will guide new leaders through individual assessments, team evaluations and group discussions so they can examine the way they communicate with others. He'll help participants identify their communication style and then show them how – and when – they need to adjust it to communicate effectively with others who have different styles.

Whether new leaders have attended the first two workshops in the series or not, "Communication Strategies" will offer the perfect solution for new leaders who are searching for ways to improve communication with their staff. It also will provide an opportunity for seasoned leaders and supervisors to brush up on their communication skills.
