Supporting New Managers in Achieving Unit Goals
Managing at UBC is a program designed to support managers in their role, recognizing the significant responsibility they hold for employee performance, engagement and achievement of unit goals.
This is self-directed program accessed through an e-learning site. The site gives you access to online lessons, various resources, as well as way to register for six in-person workshops, and several lunch & learns, studios, and special events.
A few of the topics covered are: Expanding your Influence and Credibility, Employee Relations, Difficult Conversations, Vision & Goal Setting , Assessing My Individual Style, and UBC Governance Structure.
The program is designed to fit around the busy schedule of a new manager. What you choose to take is entirely directed by you and your learning goals. We only ask that you complete a self-assessment, work with a Program Advisor to develop your unique learning path, attend the next available Jumpstart Orientation, and work towards your developmental goals.
