Register here for LTAP courses.

Thursday, January 10, 2019 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM

The job of a manager consists mainly of achieving results through others, yet managing people effectively is also the supervisor’s hardest job. In this course, participants will learn a valuable tool to help develop and manage their employees. You will learn your own preferred employee management style, and more importantly, how to adapt your style to meet the needs of each individual employee. You will understand the keys that unlock the door to employee motivation and how to master two types of interaction: directive and facilitative. Role flexibility, readiness analysis and teaming for success - three basic skills that help you develop your employees – will be addressed. You will leave this course knowing how to lead employees to peak performance through effective Directing, Coaching, Mentoring and Delegating.

Succession Planning and Knowledge Transfer

Friday, January 11, 2019 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM

As the workforce ages, most organizations are looking at fairly large numbers of employees reaching retirement age and leaving the organization. This course helps participants understand the steps needed to transfer the knowledge, skills and expertise of employees who will be leaving to others in the organization. In addition, participants will learn the components of a good succession plan and how to develop and implement a successful strategy to identify team member knowledge, skills, experience and potential. Also included is information on mentoring programs, leadership development strategies, and other ways to ensure the future success of the team and the organization.

 

Transportation Asset Management for Local Agencies

Friday, January 11, 2019 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Local transportation agencies are facing many challenges in aging roadways and bridges, constant fluctuations in construction costs and less funding for managing their roadways. A number of agencies have established programs to help document asset conditions, to allocate funding, and to determine the most effective use of available funds. These programs provide the processes and tools necessary to help transportation leaders make informed project decisions that can improve the overall operational efficiency of the organization. The Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) community has partnered with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to develop these training materials to introduce asset management concepts and provide the guidance needed to get started.
