Would you like to learn how to build more productive farm work crews?


In this two-session online learning circle, based on the DiSC Workplace Profile, UVM Extension’s Mary Peabody and will guide you through an assessment of your management preferences, your strengths and stressors. Then, you’ll explore some strategies you can use to be a better communicator and a better manager with employees, customers, and family members who may, or may not, share your work style preferences. Finally, you’ll gain insights into how to bring what you’ve learned back to the farm and use it to build a stronger, more successful crew for the coming season. The registration fee includes your customized DiSC Workplace Profile. The interactive, learning circle format will offer time for discussion and for Q&A. Sessions will be held virtually on two Tuesdays, March 19 & 26, from 10:30 – noon. Sessions will be recorded and additional resources and information will be available.
