Next session in Management Training Program set for June 5:  Effective skills for leadership and team building is the subject of the next session in MEUW’s Management Training Program – scheduled for Wednesday, June 5, in Marshfield.

The day-long session will explore the foundation of successful leadership, including a deep dive into the dynamics of leadership and how individuals can develop their team members regardless of where they are on their professional paths. The program will be led by Dana Zurbuchen, an experienced speaker, trainer and entrepreneur who has worked with some of the largest brands in the region. This is her first time presenting to MEUW. Her straightforward style helps leaders elevate their organizations and create more effective teams.

MEUW’s Management Training Program provides education for existing managers, mid-level managers and future management prospects. Participants may start at any point in the six-session (A-F) program. MEUW awards certificates to all those who complete the program.
