Guiding Conflict Resolution


http://mti.missouri.edu/courses/conflict-resolution/index.php
Conflict! Just reading the word brings to mind thoughts of difficulty and unpleasantness. Healthy conflict may promote creativity and innovation. It allows you to build on one another’s ideas to find solutions to existing problems. However, when a conflict escalates, it may cause serious problems, including decreased morale, more re-work and a less productive team.

Supervisory Certificate Series


http://mti.missouri.edu/courses/supervisory-series/index.php
It makes sense to hire front-line staff into supervisory positions; they have the technical skills you are looking for, it’s motivational to all employees and reduces the costs associated from hiring outside. Often times though, these employees lack the supervisory, management and leadership skills necessary to thrive in their new roles.
This continuing education program is designed to give new supervisors the skills they need to become successful. It is designed for individuals who have been promoted through the ranks and need to learn how to supervise others.
Dates: Thursdays, January 31 – February 21, 2013; Thursdays, June 11-14, 2013

Fees: $850

Intentional Leadership


http://www.kenan-flagler.unc.edu/executive-development/open-enrollment/programs/intentional-leadership

Even the most successful business leaders can find themselves in a rut. Routines and practices that have worked well in the past can actively work against you as you strive to reach new personal and professional goals. These routines and practices need to be reviewed, updated and sometimes replaced as responsibilities and goals change. It is important to avoid complacency and challenge yourself to go beyond your comfort zone as you strive to achieve new leadership levels. Intentional leadership is a style of leadership that allows you to overcome these types of barriers, unleash your creativity and reach your full potential as a leader.

Project Leadership: Build a Best-in-Class Project Team


http://www.kenan-flagler.unc.edu/executive-development/open-enrollment/programs/project-leadership

UNC Executive Development has been working with leading project-driven organizations, helping to enhance great project leadership and management operations to address challenges arising during execution. Many organizations have moved to matrix and global project teams in order to streamline processes internally. They have invested in management techniques such as six sigma teams and gate reviews to create processes and practices that standardize schedules, budgets and planning activities. The result is a more efficient and effective project management environment.

The obstacle that remains is when project ambiguity arises due to the challenge of managing critical project relationships both internally and externally and applying project leadership and management techniques in environments that are dynamic and undisciplined. Managing innovative projects that are different from past projects requires strategic leadership skills and new project management skills. The following are typical examples of situations that require these additional project leadership capabilities:


  • Leading global/matrix teams to reach effective decisions in a timely manner

  • Creating alignment with contractors and outside organizations over whom you have limited or no direct influence

  • Managing relationships with internal groups outside your direct control

  • Leading projects through various gate reviews to identify critical challenges

  • Managing customer expectations and relationships throughout the project lifecycle

Dates: TBD

Tuition: $3,700

Developing Leadership Presence


http://www.kenan-flagler.unc.edu/executive-development/open-enrollment/programs/executive-presence

Confidence. Vision. Integrity. Courage. Perseverance.  These are some of the traits that successful leaders possess.  While knowledge and experience are critical to success in business, truly gifted leaders are recognized through their words and actions. Leaders must have a highly developed self-awareness, and they must also connect with others in a meaningful and authentic way.  These characteristics embody true “leadership presence,” and leaders can learn and put into practice these important communication attributes.    Leadership presence is, in part, a projection of values and conviction, and it requires honesty, trust, and confidence. How leaders look and sound has a profound impact on the image they project, and this image can either strengthen or weaken their ability to inspire and motivate an audience.  In this “Developing Leadership Presence” program, you'll have the opportunity to explore, develop, and refine your leadership presence so that you can lead more effectively in your organization.
