Competency Based Programs
Valuing Work, Wellesley College’s integrated program of performance management, employee development and compensation for administrative staff, identifies nine competencies that are important for successful performance at Wellesley. The following programs have been selected to further develop expertise in these areas.
Programs for Managers
Management 101: Management Training for the Newer Manager
This program will address the basic elements of management for the new manager. Topics to be addressed include transitioning to the managerial role, communication skills for managers, and supervising troubled employees. Each component of the program will provide managers with specific skills and strategies, and exercises to practice skills.
Programs for all administrative staff members
Reaching Inside: Motivation Ourselves (Rescheduled from previous snow day)
Workplace motivation is essential to success, as evidenced by the deluge of articles targeted at managers looking to motivate their employees. Yet we cannot always rely on a manager to motivate us-we must take control and responsibility for motivating ourselves. Some days that’s easier said than done. When conditions aren’t optimal (i.e. we’re bored or overwhelmed), we need sure-fire strategies for boosting self-motivation. This seminar will provide employees with guaranteed tips for increasing motivation and positivity in the workplace.
According to Gallup, the most important predictor of employee engagement is whether or not the employee knows what is expected of them every day. Do you know what’s expected of you? IF not, attend this seminar to learn how to manage upward in order to get more from your relationship with your manager. When we manage upward we receive better and more frequent feedback, understand expectations and know our priorities. Come to this seminar to learn how to better manage your manager.
Working Smarter (Not Harder)
We all wish we had one more hour in the day. While a day is, and always will be, 24 hours, there are ways to maximize those hours to create greater productivity. This seminar is a must for anyone who wishes they could better focus, attend to details, minimize distractions, and have better quality control.
