Golf course superintendents, Syngenta wants you.
For the fourth year, Syngenta is inviting superintendents to apply to attend the Syngenta Business Institute, an innovative professional business development program. The program was developed by Syngenta specifically for golf course superintendents, in conjunction with Wake Forest University School of Business.
The four-day program, scheduled Dec. 3-6 at Graylyn International Conference Center on the campus of Wake Forest in Winston-Salem, N.C., is meant to supplement and complement superintendents' existing knowledge base, allowing more productive and efficient golf course management. The curriculum provides hands-on knowledge for superintendents to enhance their business acumen, and provides a set of leadership skills for their professional development.
Workshop sessions focus on financial and human resources management, delegation and negotiation skills, effective communication techniques, managing generational differences, and more.
To qualify, superintendents must fill out an application, including a 250-word essay on why they should be chosen to attend. Applications are due Aug. 21. Syngenta will select 25 individuals to participate based on their essays and commitment to the industry.
