Understanding Your Role as a K-State Supervisor offered virtually on Sept. 21 and 23

Submitted by Human Capital Services - Learning & Development

Understanding Your Role as a K-State Supervisor will be offered from 8:30-10:30 a.m. Monday, Sept. 21, and 10:30-11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 23, via Zoom. Attendance at both sessions will be required to receive credit for the topic.

This topic is suitable for all academic, professional and support staff with management and/or leadership roles across the university. Participants will understand the importance of a leader who encourages and guides employees, advances teamwork, inspires trust and optimizes results.

The session will provide participants with the following:

  • Defining the role of the supervisor.
  • Understanding the higher education construct in the state of Kansas and the hierarchy of Kansas State University.
  • Differentiating employee types — university support staff, unclassified, faculty.
  • Understanding the importance of effective onboarding practices.
  • Building rapport and trust within a team.

You must be a current supervisor — of university support staff or unclassified professionals — to attend this session. This session is offered in conjunction with the K-State Supervisory Foundations Pillar I: Establishing Your Supervisory Foundation certificate program, therefore, seating is limited.

To register for this session, please complete this registration form.
