Managing at UBCO
This nine-month program has been designed to challenge leaders at all levels to be their very best. Based on a leadership model that starts with the idea that the act of managing requires an understanding of both management and leadership and a dual focus on tasks and people, this program includes assessments, coaching, workshops, and peer learning triads.
To qualify to join the next cohort, as an M&P or Librarian you must have staff supervisory and budgetary responsibility, and have the full support of your AVP or Director, as they will be working with you on an action-learning project consistent with your learning goals.
For more information on the program, please contact Shannon Ballance.
