Job Relations Crash Course

A leadership crash course for Team Leaders, Supervisors, and Managers

Set Your Leaders Up For Success

Prepare your leaders to succeed by training them with time-tested leadership methodology. This course is inspired by the proven methods of TWI Job Relations developed in WWII. No other leadership methodology can so easily claim “winning a war.” Help your leaders succeed with Job Relations Crash Course and win your war against waste!

Increase Results Through People

The critical characteristic of a leader is that he or she gets results through others (versus his or her individual production output). By training leaders who actually lead, you will maximize the results you achieve through every team member at your organization.

Create a Solid People Foundation for Lean

Many companies struggle to “go lean” simply because they lack the frontline leadership capacity necessary to lead team members, engage in problem-solving, and practice continuous improvement / kaizen. Use this course to create a solid leadership foundation to succeed longterm with lean.

Learn the Leadership Principles that Won World War II

We love the original TWI Job Relations curriculum because it’s highly practical, very specific, and one of the only methodologies we know that tangibly won a war. Job Relations was instrumental in boosting American production during WWII and boasts exceptional results.

Don’t meddle or struggle with leadership training that is abstract and theoretical.

Take hold of our Job Relations Crash Course and start succeeding now.
