The Grayson County Chamber of Commerce will be hosting the first in a “Sharpening Series” of employment workshops on Wednesday, January 29.
The Chamber of Commerce is partnering with Elizabethtown Community and Technical College to host a series of workshops in 2014 to “answer the call of workforce development and skill enhancement among the local community,” Chamber Director Becky Escue said.
The sharpening workshops are open to anyone in Grayson County, Escue said.
The kick-off to this series will be “Generation Gaps,” which will address how individuals of different generations approach and view the work environment differently and help individuals “learn to understand the various generations, what motivates them, and how to work with them daily,” according to Escue.
The free Generation Gaps workshop will be conducted by ECTC and held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Centre on Main.
The following five Sharpening Series workshops will be available at a Chamber member charge and a non-Chamber member charge.
Additional workshops will be “Employee Motivation” in February; “Teamwork and Team Building” in April; “Interpersonal Skills” in June; “Business Writing” in September; and “Creative Problem Solving” in November.
Escue said anyone who is interested in finding out more information about or attending one or all of the Sharpening Series workshops may register by calling the Chamber at 270-259-5587.
The Centre on Main is located at 425 South Main Street in Leitchfield.
