Management Development Seminars

Professional development resources available to Willamette staff and faculty

Since 1998, the human resources offices at several local higher education institutions have worked together to provide low cost, high quality training for supervisors and managers. These seminars include a range of topics and change every year, providing continued access to impactful and relevant material. It's also a great opportunity to connect with managers and supervisors at other institutions.

The 2017-2018 MDS sessions are:

  • StrengthsFinder - Friday November 3, 2017
  • Emotional Intelligence - Friday December 8, 2017
  • Unconscious Bias - Friday January 19, 2018
  • Employment Law for Supervisors - Friday February 16, 2018 
  • Crucial Conversations - Thursday and Friday, March 29 & 30, 2018

This year Willamette University will be hosting the Employment Law for Supervisors session!
