People Management on the Farm

In addition to being skilled at growing crops and raising livestock, marketing, and managing your books, running a successful farm business also depends on being an effective people manager. This workshop will help you develop the leadership skills necessary to keep your employees engaged and motivated. We will focus on two vital management skills for creating a work place where employees are productive and satisified - setting expectations and providing feedback. This workshop will be geared towards farm business owners and managers but the concepts that are covered will be applicable to businesses across the organic supply chain.
