Understanding Your Role as a K-State Supervisor offered virtually on Feb. 23 and 25

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. Tuesday, Feb. 23, and 8:30-9:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 25, 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 help participants:

  • Understand the higher education construct in the state of Kansas and the hierarchy of Kansas State University.
  • Differentiate employee types — university support staff, unclassified, faculty.
  • Understand the importance of effective onboarding practices.

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