Interest survey: Winter 2018 UC People Management Networking Cohort

People managers who wish to be considered for the Winter 2018 UC Performance Management Networking Cohort are asked to fill out this interest survey by Dec. 5.

Participants are people managers who want to or have completed the UC Performance Management Certificate (via UC Learning Center). There are 10 required and 4 elective modules to complete to earn the certificate. Each module takes from 30 to 45 minutes. (Browse course titles and codes here).

As a member of the networking cohort, you'll meet for a facilitated call once a month for 10 months to share:

  • Tools used from the UC People Management course and how they are affecting positive change
  • Guidance for challenges or issues in engagement, productivity or communication
  • Homework assignments from the course

People who complete the course by June 2018 will be eligible to apply for funds to attend the second annual UC People Management Conference in August 2018. See last year's conference website.

What are participants saying?

The UC People Management Certificate series has helped me to be a more well-rounded and engaged supervisor.  I have learned that performance management is more than a once-a-year performance evaluation endeavor; it's an ever-evolving process of setting expectations and goals, monitoring and giving staff feedback, coaching, reviewing expectations, evaluating results which replays continually. Additionally, I have learned how to work with my staff to create SMART goals which benefit not only the employee, but the entire organization as well. Additionally, using the lessons learned in the series, an administrative succession plan has been formulated which will ensure continuity of services and institutional knowledge. --- Lori Renstrom, M.A. Administrative Officer 3, UCCE San Diego County
