The Heart of True Leadership: Supervisory Training for the Public Workforce

March 5-7, 2013
Generally individuals receive training when they first move into a supervisory role. But over time they identify new areas where they'd like to hone their skills as their role evolves, the workforce changes, and new research on effective management practices emerges. This course is designed to make sure participants walk away after those three days of training with enhanced skills and new strategies to manage staff effectively whether they're new to a supervisory role or have held those responsibilities for years This award-winning training is practical, engaging, and relevant for new supervisors and experienced leaders seeking a quick refresher. You'll attend class with other supervisors working in a variety of public service organizations so you'll benefit from the variety of perspectives in class in addition to gaining new skills and ideas from the course materials.

Jaclyn Carpenter, a junior studying American Studies, took a moment after finishing her finals to wander around Marvin Grove — know the feeling? But Jaclyn told us her semester was a good one. Her favorite class this year? Jewish American Literature, "because professor Cheryl Lester really knows how to engage with her classes." This made us want to know: What was your favorite class and why? Jaclyn added some advice: “You're only on this campus for four years, so take any free time you have to explore all the unique wonders it has." We love that idea, Jaclyn. #exploreKU

Beard, who came to KU as a Foundation Distinguished Professor, has a passion for being out in the middle of nowhere and making a discovery — “There’s nothing better than that. It’s fabulous.”
