UW-Green Bay responds to the business challenge for leadership pipeline
Green Bay, Wis.—Area businesses continue to identify and express the need for leadership training as an important way to develop a pipeline of new world decision makers that can take their companies into a progressive future. UW-Green Bay has responded with a certificate program in Supervisory Leadership offered during spring and fall semesters that can be completed in one semester or paced over 18 months.
The University has tapped local leaders with demonstrated experience and insight on key topics to instruct the certificate, which comprises a core course, six topic courses and a capstone experience.
“We kickoff the certificate program with a core course called ‘Developing Yourself and Others’ that includes a CliftonStrengths 34 assessment because self-awareness seems to be the common denominator with leaders who excel as changemakers in their industries,” says Teri Zuege-Halvorson, area director of Continuing Professional Education.
Topic courses cover important tenets of leadership, including:
- Interpersonal Communication from Collaboration — Learn the fundamentals of communication and how to harness your style to the situation or need.
- Change Management — Recent history proves change is inevitable in the workplace. Understand the reaction to change and develop a guide to smoother transitions.
- Creating Cultural Transformation — Companies need new ideas and innovation. Discover how to prompt creative thinking and create a culture of meaningful results.
- Supervision and Human Resources — Essential training for any leader.
- Coaching for Performance — Learn how to get the best out of your team and develop a culture of performance.
- Helping Your Team Achieve Organizational Management — Gain understanding on how best to structure, organizing people and resources to optimum effect.
All candidates will conclude the program with a capstone experience, which will involve integrating all the concepts learned with the development of an action plan for a new program or initiative that can be actively implemented in the workplace.
Aspiring adults are invited to pursue more responsibility and influence with a certificate program in Supervisory Leadership, now enrolling for Fall 2021. Classes can be taken ala carte or as a complete program. Future-proofing businesses are encouraged to build on the program to create a customized leadership curriculum that meets their particular situation and culture.
The program has been developed as part of UW-Green Bay’s Division of Continuing Education and Community Engagement.
