Leadership Development

At the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, we are committed to providing an excellent educational and workplace experience, characterized by innovation, transformation, and place. UW-Green Bay recognizes the impact that all supervisors have on the quality of work, level of productivity, and work attitude of the employees they direct. Supervisors contribute greatly towards the growth, loyalty, motivation, retention, team spirit, and development of employees who report to them. Ongoing training and professional development are important. Please see the information below regarding 2017 training opportunities for UW-Green Bay supervisors:

Supervising for Success: Effective Management for the UW-Green Bay Workforce (formerly Supervisor Bootcamp) This program assists new leaders in developing skills that will help them maximize individual and team performance and learn what it means to be a supervisor at UW-Green Bay. The next offering of this full, two-day session will be Tuesday, April 11 – Wednesday, April 12, 2017, in the 1965 Room.

Supervising for Success for the Experienced UW-Green Bay Supervisor: A new program for 2017, structured off of the original Supervising for Success program, has been designed towards those in upper-level leadership roles across campus (Dean/Division Head or higher) or as a refresher for those who’ve already completed the introductory Supervising for Success program. Each month, Human Resources will host a focused session on a specific topic. Please see the HR Connect for dates, times, and registration information.

Supervisory Leadership Certificate Program: This certification opportunity targeted to UW-Green Bay supervisors is a collaboration between the Wisconsin Small Business Development Center and Human Resources. The program is designed to help supervisors build leadership skills, invest in their employees, and advance their department. Each semester, five supervisors will be selected to begin this program. Approximately $300 – $400 in expenses for course materials will be charged to the department. If funding is a barrier to participation, supervisors are encouraged to discuss alternative funding options with their divisional leaders. Please review the program flyer for more information.
