UC Management Development Program

Campus Human Resources is pleased to announce the 2020 UC Management Development Program and requests nominees for participation in this high-profile development opportunity. This impactful systemwide training program was established to enhance and strengthen leadership capabilities in core management competencies and ensure managers have the skills, knowledge, and resources to effectively lead, engage and develop staff.

The University of California Office of the President (UCOP) commissioned industry leaders in talent management and leadership development to create a program that is relevant to the evolving demands that University managers face. Input from past participants and an ongoing review of emerging organizational needs help to ensure the program content is current and relevant. Attendees will participate in work-group discussions relevant to the UC context, including practical application and action planning.

The program consists of four full-day modules conducted at the Wilshire Center training facility:

  • March 17: Module 1 – Manager Redefined: Redefine your role as a manager and leader who encourages and guides employees, advances teamwork, inspires trust, and optimizes results. Towers Watson
  • March 31: Module 2 – Employee Engagement: Create a workplace environment that promotes employee engagement and development. Blessing White
  • April 23: Module 3 – Exercising Influence: Improve your ability to work with others to gain commitment and achieve results. Barnes and Conti
  • May 7: Module 4 – Leading Change and Managing Transitions: Develop strategic approaches to making an organizational change. Linkage

The program’s target audience is managers at PSS5/MSP1 and above (or equivalent classifications), especially those who manage supervisors and/or lead complex programs or projects. Participation is limited to 25 attendees, with the expectation that all four modules will be completed. The program fee is $875, including course materials, a light continental breakfast and lunch. Each session is scheduled in the Wilshire Center training facility, Room 1080.
