UI Staff Development sponsors Supervisors and Managers Conference March 25

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The University of Iowa Office of Staff Development is presenting a Supervisors and Managers Conference Thursday, March 25, during which employers can learn how to find and keep exceptional employees.

At the one-day conference new or experienced managers alike will hear from nationally-known business experts, who will present 16 sessions in areas such as overcoming challenges, developing employees, acquiring success skills, and leadership development.

Managing and supervising people is not a skill that comes naturally to most people, but it's a skill that can be learned. "The conference is a benefit to managers, who can learn practical ways to boost people-management skills to increase their organization's effectiveness," said Maureen McCormick, staff development coordinator.

The Supervisors and Managers Conference runs 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Radisson Hotel, 2525 N. Dodge St. in Iowa City. The $149 registration fee includes participant materials with information from all 16 sessions, lunch, and break refreshments.

The conference is open to the public and UI staff. Registration deadline is March 16, and space is limited. To enroll, call UI Staff Development at (319) 335-2687.
