New Frontline Leadership Training Announced for Southwest Regional Gas Conference

A new class, Frontline Leadership Training, has been added to SGA’s 2019 Southwest Regional Gas Conference and Expo. This class provides two days of expert facilitation from Cindy Mitchell, SGA’s interim director of learning and professional development. Mitchell has more than 10 years of experience teaching this training to oil and gas companies.

Designed specifically for team leaders and supervisors, SGA’s Frontline Leadership Training is a dedicated, two-day course created uniquely to meet the needs of the energy industry crew leaders.

Most crew leaders work their way up through the ranks. They usually know the technical aspects of the crews work like the back of their hands. Typically, they are promoted to a leadership role because of their technical qualifications, an ability to work well with others or seniority.

But often they are given little or no preparation for the leadership skills needed in their new role. To solve this problem, many companies send their crew leaders to generic leadership trainings.

However, since the crew leader’s job is very different from the typical manager or leader, so much of the generic leadership training can seem irrelevant to the crew leaders.

This course will help you learn how to build better teams, resolve conflict and coach individuals to grow individually and together.

Here’s a sneak peek at what you’ll learn:

  • Leadership Tools that Apply Directly Back to the Job
  • Situational Responses to Field Issues
  • How to Build Strong Teams
  • Motivational Methods for Crews and How to Implement Conflict Resolutions
  • Properly Coaching Employees and Team members
  • How to Plan Work and How to Work with Management
  • How to Lead Your Former Peers and Work with Team Members that Might Be Older and Have More Seniority than You

Who should attend? Anyone would benefit from this training, but we’ve specialized the focus to be a best fit for foremen, supervisors crew leads, craft supervisors, shift supervisors and team leads.
