Leadership Development for the New Year

Leadership GearsHappy New Year colleagues! We are pleased to offer new and expanded training opportunities in 2022 for all Humboldt employees, and particularly for those with management and leadership responsibilities.

This month we are launching a recurring three-part workshop called Leading Your Team through Change as part of Humboldt’s new People-Centered Change Initiative. In this series, people managers will gain skills and tools to better support their teams during times of change. Registration for sessions in January, February and March is now open. (Also coming soon is a workshop for all employees about how to navigate change in your work environment!)

Registration is also open for Principles of Supervision , a seven-part workshop series focused on enhancing your management of individuals and teams, as well as leadership principles. Space is limited. The weekly series will launch February 22 and run through April 5. Recent Principles of Supervision participants said:

“Just thank you for a robust fountain of resources as I settle into my role!”
“I really enjoyed all of our conversations.”
“This was really fun! I learned a lot and I hope that you continue offering this course.”
“Thanks again for a great, thought-provoking workshop.”

Join your peers in ongoing professional development and meaningful connection. We look forward to seeing you in a workshop soon!
