Workshops to improve supervising and other skills

Register by phone at 243-5998 or online under Personal and Professional Development Offerings at: www.hrs.virginia.edu/dot/general/generalinfoPPD.htm

Supervisory Leadership
This workshop focuses on the critical contributions and key results associated with front-line leadership responsibilities for the “manager in the middle.” The program is particularly relevant for those individuals who are either new to their supervisory roles or who are experienced but lack formal preparation and supervisory training. Participants will work on clarifying role expectations and responsibilities attached to supervisory positions; spelling out specific role contributions for both themselves and their employees; and explore how understanding motivational needs and preferences influences the development of relationships. The goal is to give participants concepts and tools they can put to immediate use.
July 20, 8:30 a.m.-noon, Cost: $30

Successful Writing: What do you do when spell-check isn’t enough?
If you always wonder whether to use a comma or a semi-colon, this is the seminar designed for you. The two half-day workshops will focus on how to write in your work setting and help you produce professionally written documents. The first session will cover the writing process and give an overview of purpose and guidelines for writing, editing and proofreading. The second session will cover business writing and E-mail etiquette.
July 19 & 21, 8:30 a.m.-noon
Cost: $50
