Learn and laugh at this Metalcasting Congress course on workplace climate

March 7, 2018

We all have a stake in developing a culture of respect and safety for employees. You can learn ways to create an enjoyable work climate – and have a laugh along the way – at a course offered by the AFS Institute at the 122nd Metalcasting Congress April 3-5 in Fort Worth, Texas.

Leading Edge Coaching & Development is returning to Metalcasting Congress this year for "Creating a Culture of Respect Through Feedback," an interactive course that blends Leading Edge's trademark improvisational comedy with real-life guidance. The course will teach you to support a thriving workplace through your ability to deliver and receive feedback, and how to diffuse triggers before they impact your credibility, reputation, and workplace.

 "Creating a Culture of Respect Through Feedback," led by Cindy Maher and Jamie Guite, will take place from 8-10:15 a.m. April 5 in Room 203A at the Fort Worth Convention Center. The course is included with Education & Exhibits registration. To register for Metalcasting Congress, please click here.
