Coming together, keeping together and working together during unprecedented times.
Although we live in challenging times, few organizations are managing those challenges as well as UC ANR. Throughout our community, at every level, staff and academics have innovated and found new ways to ensure that our local communities continue to be served by our programs, our research and our partnerships. You have all shown your ability to adapt and have demonstrated a high level of resilience in a continually changing and unprecedented environment these past months. Yet, even resilience requires renewal and revitalization.
Therefore, as we continue to adjust to ongoing change, I want to encourage all UC ANR people – supervisors and individual contributors alike – to tap more deeply into their collaborative and team building potential by completing the UC People Management Certificate Series within the next year.
ANR as a whole will benefit from our individual understanding of the basic tenets of employee engagement, team building, setting clear expectations, clear communication and collaboration. On an individual basis, you will gain a deeper understanding and tools to enhance your people skills, collaboration skills, prioritizing work, implicit bias awareness, being an effective team member, and preparing yourself for leadership roles.
There are 16 required and 4 elective modules which range from 15-25 minutes. Included in the required modules are topics such as “Giving and Receiving Feedback”, “Coaching for Performance and Development”, and “What is Implicit Bias?” In the elective course section, topics include “Building Collaborative Relationships,” “Move Forward with Change Planning” and “UC Responding to Conflict.” They are well worth your investment of time – both as professional development and personal growth.
Let's continue to champion the amazing work we all do by delving into people management.
Once you have completed the series, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for your digital certificate.
As always, many thanks for the great work you do!
Stay safe out there,
