UPDATE: Due to the uncertainties around the spread of COVID-19, we have decided to postpone this upcoming Supervisor for Success session. We will be looking at alternative dates and will provide an update as those determinations are made.

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 which assists both new and experienced leaders in developing skills that will help them maximize individual and team performance.

The next offering of this full, two-day session will be Wednesday, April 8, 2020 – Thursday, April 9, 2020 in the Alumni Room (UU 103).  Topics that are included in this program include:

  • Legal issues for supervisors
  • Classifications, titling, and compensation
  • Governance structures
  • Creating a diverse and inclusive workplace
  • Recruitment and staffing
  • Orientation and onboarding
  • Employee offboarding
  • Performance review, evaluation, and employee development
  • Employee relations (conflict and discipline)
  • Change management
  • Communication, coaching, mentoring and motivation
