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 training opportunities for UW-Green Bay supervisors:
