Congratulations to the Supervisory Skills Development class of 2011/12!
This past week participants from across the St. John’s campus were recognized for completing the Supervisory Skills Development Program, which runs from Oct.- June and covers 14 topics including problem solving and decision making, performance coaching, conflict management, diversity awareness and customer service.
“The content is really good,” says Memorial’s Web Manager Paul Whittle, who was one of 18 graduates of the program. “But I think the biggest strength is that you get to learn about the other units at Memorial and you develop a respect for what each one does.
“There’s a lot of team work and you get to know the people. You realize we are all in this together and we’re all Memorial.”
The Supervisory Skills Development program was created by the Department of Human Resources back in 2005 to meet the learning needs of supervisory and management personnel across Memorial.
Supported by Human Resources and the Office of the Vice-President of Administration and Finance, the program accepts 20 employees from the university’s various units and departments.
The Canadian Association of University Business Officers (CAUBO) recognized the Skills Development Program for its excellence in 2007.
This fall 2012-13, the program will be offered at both the St. John’s and Grenfell Campuses.
