First-line mangers perform many functions and are the first contact point between line workers and management and often the customer.  The role requires strong ‘people skills’ to build trusting relationships and teams in order to help achieve business objectives.

In addition to skills development, the workshops will focus on explaining what FLM competencies are, how to use them and why they make a difference commercially.
