Fundamentals of Crew Leadership
Work gets done most efficiently if workers are divided into crews with a common purpose. When a crew is formed to tackle a particular job, one person is appointed the leader. This person is usually an experienced craftworker who has demonstrated leadership qualities. To become an effective leader, it helps if a trainee has natural leadership qualities, but there are specific job skills that each craftworker must learn in order to do the job well. This module will teach the skills needed to be an effective leader, including the ability to communicate effectively, provide direction to a crew and effectively plan and schedule the work of a crew.
