New PD workshops this August

HR is hosting two professional envelopment workshops this August:

Discovering Personal Effectiveness: Aug. 8 (9:00 a.m.  4:00 p.m.)

Self-awareness is at the heart of professional growth and development. By understanding ourselves, we are able to better connect with others, create meaningful relationships at work, improve our personal leadership and be more effective in our communications.

Practical Project Management: Aug. 21-22 (9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.)

Many people are finding projects an increasing part of their workload, yet still have their ‘day job’ responsibilities. Getting your project off to the best possible start is essential for success and tackling today’s project focused environment requires a straightforward, down to earth approach. This two-day workshop provides practical, effective tools and proven processes that ensure your projects get off to a clear and solid start, ensuring they stay on track, and your deliverables are achieved on time and on budget.

If you are interested in these workshops, you may be able to use your professional development funding. Please visit the page for your employee group to learn more.
