UI Staff Development offers seminar series for managers, supervisors

The University of Iowa Office of Staff Development is offering a monthly seminar series this fall covering workplace issues such as phone skills and security, employee performance reviews, and reducing stress at work. One seminar will include a creativity camp for managers and supervisors. The series is open to the general public.

"We're offering ways for managers and employees to simplify their workday using proven strategies and techniques, while gaining a fresh outlook on effectiveness," says Maureen McCormick, UI director of staff development.

The all-day seminars are under way in August and continue with the highly anticipated Creativity Camp for Managers and Supervisors (Sept. 4-5), and Phone Skills and Security Essentials for Front Line Staff (Oct. 30). The series concludes with How to Dejunk & Destress Your Life (Nov. 13) and How to Give Employee Performance Reviews (Dec.16). More information can be found online at in the "Special Events" section.
