Training and Services for Managers

It is important that managers know how to find the tools and resources that they need to do the things that they have been asked to do.

While Human Resources provides a variety of training and professional development opportunities for all of our employees, there are many services that have been tailored specifically to the needs of our managers.

HR Forums

Each semester, Human Resources holds HR Forums to provide HR contacts with new information and updates. Memos are also sent to inform HR contacts of upcoming forum dates.

Training Opportunities

Register for upcoming training classes! Review our training calendar, which is formatted by date, or our class list by subject.

Some of the training is required, while other training is offered for additional information and support. Training opportunities specific to managers include:

Management Development Program (LEAD)

Mandatory for all staff hired into a supervisory position after January 1, 2010, the LEAD series is a two-track management development program designed to assist University employees in enhancing their knowledge, skills and abilities to lead people and get results. It also serves as a vehicle to prepare employees for career advancement.

Leadership Development Programs

Each year, a group of individuals are selected to participate in one of two leadership development programs. Participants go through 40-50 hours of targeted professional development activities which are focused on President Pastides’ five leadership competencies.

Organizational Development Services

Organizational Developments Services are a valuable resource for employees and managers to enhance individual performance or group performance. Services are offered on three levels: individual services, group/team services and organizational services.

Business Manager Certificate Program

Individual Development Plan (IDP)
