This fall, the Organizational Development unit launched a supervisory and management skills attestation for its supervising managers at various levels. With consideration for managers’ time constraints and their need for ever greater skills in effectively managing people, processes and performance, this practical attestation promises to deliver!
Although not an accredited program, the attestation will help managers to increase their mastery of key competencies required in managing employees, teams and processes. The mini-program is grounded in some very pragmatic principles and tools, with emphasis on proper prioritization, planning, meaningful measures of success, tracking, and continuous learning.
Participants will earn their attestation after attending six pre-selected workshops, currently available on the training calendar. Workshops range from two to three hours in length, and are generally supported by pre-work (e.g. self-assessments, videos, etc.) and tools that can be later applied on-the-job. As well, managers are encouraged to share their learnings in their respective units and to join networks where managers share best practices and find practical support (see CoachingOurselves and Co-Development initiatives organized by Organizational Development under the umbrella “Strength in Community”).
Participants have up to two years to complete their attestation. The first attestations are expected to be issued in the winter of 2014, the shortest time it takes to complete the six workshops.
