Prepare Managers to Build Competencies, Manage Effectively & Maximize Opportunities
Frequently, staff members hired for mid-level management roles, whether promoted from within or hired from an external search, come into the position with limited experience and skills for supervision, budget management, data driven decision making, and/or strategic planning. They also frequently lack skills in more challenging areas like conflict management; documenting disciplinary issues; and managing up, down and across the institution. This lack of experience can cause frustrations within the institution and lead to perceptions of a lack of communication or leadership skills.
Join us on July 19, 2022, when our presenter will discuss the challenges institutions face when trying to prepare leaders for new roles and provide practical resources to train mid-level professionals to develop knowledge and practice skill sets, identify and gain new knowledge that can be applied immediately to better utilize critical leadership skills, and set and achieve professional development skills to continue to progress in areas where they lack experience.
As the team members who are most closely connected to the areas of service, mid-level professionals tend to be the testers of emerging ideas that help connect the dots on institutional strategy. But without training in effective problem solving, staff supervision, relationship development and assessment, these ideas may not be fully vetted or assessed and the outcome may be a detriment to your institution.
This online training is appropriate for anyone currently serving in the mid-level professional role or those supervising mid-level managers.
You will take away critical, actionable tools that will help you:
- Increase your success as a mid-level manager by meeting the demands from above while being a resource for those below - gain practical solutions to improve communication with direct reports and colleagues to improve productivity, reduce lulls in action on projects, and increase accountability.
- Leverage your unique position within your organization – maximize your opportunities to contribute to institutional goals, build your competencies, and manage effectively both up and down.
- Understand the key elements of change management and how to adapt to shifts in responsibility or culture – address gaps in staffing and manage transitions in higher education post-pandemic, as well as develop justifications to keep necessary positions funded in your area.
- Foster cross-campus relationships to ensure you create opportunities to enhance your professional and personal experiences – understand your career goals and needs so that they support your professional development and advancement.
- Identify and implement strategies that utilize supervisory skills and best practices on leading – develop high-performing teams, including ways to manage challenging staff, to ensure goals are met.
- Utilize research-based strategies and experience from institutional leaders to develop skills to be successful in the changing world of higher education - sustain morale and productivity when challenges hit your area and make the hard decisions about the things that need to be put on hold versus the projects that must be maintained.
