Managing@UBC has been developed to provide personalized and customized learning for managers. In order to cater to your individual needs, the program adopts a self-directed learning approach where you can select from a menu of resources and access what is most relevant to you. As a participant, you will receive support from the Leadership Program Manager and will be assigned a Program Advisor who will help guide and direct your learning depending on your specific needs. Upon completion of a year in the program you will be entered into the Managing@UBC Community of Practice to continue discussions on management and leadership at the University.
All participants are expected to:
- Complete a leaderskills self-assessment
- Establish goals with a Program Advisor
- Create a Learning Path (a participant’s self-directed curriculum)
- Attend Jumpstart and Final Summit
- Access resources relevant to learning needs
- Form and participate in a Peer Learning Group
- Complete a 180 (self and boss) or a 360 assessment (self, boss, staff and colleagues) at the end of the year
