Supervising for Success for the Experienced UW-Green Bay Supervisor

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 of all UW-Green Bay supervisors is important.  The University offers a program, Supervising for Success: Effective Management for the UW-Green Bay Workforce (formerly called Supervisor Bootcamp) which is geared towards new supervisors and focused on developing skills that will help them maximize individual and team performance.

New in 2017, the University will begin offering a similar program, geared 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 Supervising for Success program. Each month HR will host a focused session on a specific topic. Please see the chart below for topics and dates:
