Developing your leadership and management skills

We offer consulting on management and leadership skills by personally visiting the dairy operation and identifying personnel management strengths and weaknesses and providing recommendations and ideas that can improve employee performance, efficiency, and motivation.

We also do on farm work one on one with supervisors, managers, and or farm owners to develop their leadership and management skills. This work is customized to the requirements and needs of the farm and managers.

• Essential communication skills

Discipline and termination

Dairy farms that don’ t have disciplinary rules in place, or that have them but rarely implement them can create confusion and mixed messages with the employees.

At APN Consulting, LLC we can help develop disciplinary programs for your dairy which will help you:

• Develop fair rules and consequences
• Clearly communicate policies and rules to Spanish speaking employees
• Conduct fair investigations when misconducts occur among Hispanic workers

Interpersonal conflict mediation

Many times, conflicts between Spanish speaking workers or workers and supervisors can’t be solved by just telling employees to work out their problems on their own, or shake hands and get along.

Having a third party, that can speak spanish and understands the worker’s culture can help significantly. At APN Consulting, we can do mediation work to assist in resolving conflicts between employees and help managers and owners resolve problems between workers.

Organizing and conducting effective meetings

When done right meetings can be very useful and productive. At APN Consulting, LLC we help managers, supervisors, and farm owners learn how to plan and run effective meetings focusing in these areas:

• Planning meetings effectively
• Conducting productive meetings without wasting time
• Have better control of your meetings
• Meeting follow ups

Hiring your first hispanic workforce

US statistics clearly show that large dairy farms are predominantly operated by foreign-born workers (mainly Spanish speaking people).

If you are thinking of hiring Spanish speaking workers for the first time we can help you train and coach your new workers. We can help make the transition go smoothly and be a success.

Training sessions for supervisors and middle managers in spanish

Do you have Hispanic workers that could become supervisors or that already have a supervisory role in your dairy operation?

At APN Consulting, we work with many Hispanic middle managers and supervisors to improve or develop their skills. The training process consists of a combination of classroom type sessions and hands on one-on-one work.
