Management teams are a key component to the success of every dairy. Dr. Bernard Erven will outline the three critical steps in forming an effective management team. Dairies have to identify what a management’s team role will be, who will make best candidates including family and non-family team members and, finally, provide the right training and leadership to accomplish goals. The seminar will conclude with take home tips that any manager can use almost immediately on any size operation. Erven is a professor emeritus at the Ohio State University. For over 40 years, he has worked around North America consulting and giving presentations about hiring, training, motivation, compensation, performance feedback and discipline.
