Frontline Leader Training Program
In October 2022, Barriere launched a new Frontline Leader Training Program. Created to provide tools for supervisors to reinforce leadership behaviors that support company values, the six-module program is being held at Barriere’s Boutte Training Center.
What is a frontline leader?
A frontline leader is an operational employee who directly supervises employees within their team. Consistent, direct contact with team members makes this person’s leadership pivotal to the success of long-term projects and day-to-day operations at Barriere.
The Frontline Leader Training Program is designed to maximize the positive impact of our team leaders – from Surveyors and Quality Control to Superintendents – on operational employees across the company.
In addition to classes on building a foundation of leadership and strengthening it over time, participants will learn about setting goals, coaching and motivating others. The program also contains modules covering safety, inclusion and conflict resolution.
Tools and training for effective communication are central to the Frontline Leader Training Program. For example, the first module, Leadership: Building the Foundation, is all about leading effective conversations and responding to the personal and practical needs of team members. By teaching participants how to hone the communication skills that will help their teams achieve results, this foundational class lays the groundwork for the five other modules.
