HR launches another Leading at IU series
Great leaders seek to develop their employees and themselves. Indiana University wants to give its leaders — managers of people and teams — the tools they need to succeed.
The IU Human Resources Talent and Organization Development team is launching another Leading at IU Series in February. This nine-month virtual series focuses on developing leaders at IU through building critical skills while allowing participants to network and learn from their peers across the university.
The curriculum is based on the IU Staff Competencies, which is the roadmap for how everyone at IU can maximize their potential. Each month, the series will introduce a valuable leadership skill or behavior, helpful tools and resources for managers, and opportunities to apply the learning.
Past participants shared positive feedback about the well-organized curriculum, the opportunity to learn from their peers and the ability to immediately apply new skills in real-life situations.
The series is open to all IU staff and faculty — at any career level, any classification — who manage staff. The time commitment is 2½ hours each month, February through October.
Enrollment is limited to 200 qualified participants. Applications will be accepted through Jan. 15.
Leaders can visit the Leading at IU Series web page to learn more and apply. Additional leadership tools are available at the IU HR website, including the foundational Four Simple Actions that help leaders enhance engagement and guide their teams to success.
