The seasonality of the Green Industry can provide for some very stressful days. This seasonality can also provide challenges in the form of seasonal employees who may only be looking for a paycheck and not have the same passion as you do for the job. How do you bridge this gap? How do you get employees to have fun and at the same time take some ownership in this seasonal job? Don’t forget about yourself - do you also have fun as you lead the team and work with others? In this 60-minute webinar, Matt Cavanaugh explains how he keeps his employees engaged and coming back year after year. Listen in to have some fun and get ideas you can use to decompress and build loyalty in your team.

About the Instructor
Matt Cavanaugh is the golf course superintendent at Rush Creek Golf Club in Maple Grove, Minn. He earned his bachelor’s from Kansas State University and master’s from the University of Minnesota, both in turfgrass management. While earning the latter, Cavanaugh continued to work as an assistant superintendent at Rush Creek – something that caused a temporary backfire when he graduated and sought a superintendent position. Cavanaugh then worked for a school district, for PBI-Gordon, and as a research scientist for the University of Minnesota. These positions resulted in a new perspective that he brings to his superintendent position.
