Effective RMC Supervisor Course

Next class TBA


The Effective RMC Supervisor Course helps ready mixed concrete operations supervisors lead their staff. The challenge is a tough one because their people management tactics must align with the organization’s strategy and mission while their personal success is judged by the work of their direct reports. Without using proper communication and motivation skills/tools to successfully manage these responsibilities, many supervisors become frustrated. It typically is the highest turnover job category because it is difficult to transition from executing your job to leading others to perform theirs.

NRMCA knows a supervisor’s job is about more than just getting concrete into trucks and onto the job site. Supervisors manage a workforce, deal with customers, work with peers to build productive relationships across and outside the organization. The Effective RMC Supervisor course’s goal is to equip supervisors with these important concepts and skills.

• Develop boundaries that fit within company needs and goals, including ethical behavior, implementing legal hiring, on the job training, and discipline processes, handling employee complaints, conflict, workplace violence, defining basic workplace legal boundaries, and implementing health and safety compliance.

• How to properly direct and guide performance of a task, especially helping employees accept company changes that impact their job execution.

• Build better communication skills with upper management and your employees based on an understanding of different work styles and team motivation principles.
