SBDC at UW-Green Bay unveils new workshops in its 2015-16 Supervisory Leadership Certificate Program

The Wisconsin Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay introduces its 2015-16 Supervisory Leadership certificate program workshops beginning in September and concluding in May 2016.

The 2015-2016 program includes many new one-day workshops. These include Leading with Emotional Intelligence, Leading with Facilitation Skills, and Leading (Influence) without Authority. One day workshops unveiled in last year’s program including Servant Leadership for Supervisors, Executive Presence for Supervisors, Leading with Humor and Improvisation, Leading through Change, Hiring Wisely, Courageous Communication, and Financial Management for Non-Financial Managers will also be offered this year.

Designed for supervisors who are looking to build leadership skills and advance their businesses, the Supervisory Leadership certificate program’s component workshops provide practical and interactive content that attendees can immediately integrate into their workplace, improving their workforce results. The flexible program is designed for new supervisors as well as seasoned leaders who wish to improve upon specific supervisory skills.

Participants who wish to earn a Supervisory Leadership certificate will be required to attend the two core workshops, Supervisory Leadership: Sessions 1 and 2, as well as eight days of elective programs within three years. However, individuals may take workshops whether or not they intend to pursue the certificate.

All Supervisory Leadership workshops are held at the Advance Business and Manufacturing Center, 2701 Larsen Road, Green Bay. All two-day workshops are $425 per person and all one-day workshops are $200 per person. Workshops meet from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on the scheduled dates, and refreshments and lunch are included.
