Discover the Power of Your Personal Leadership

Each day, no matter our job title or position, we have an opportunity to be a leader and make a real different in client, staff and leadership satisfaction. 

Learn more about your personal form of leadership through Learning & Development's popular "Personal Leadership at Work" core program for University of Guelph staff which will be offered in February 2013.

Four Generations at Work

The ability to motivate and co-ordinate staff in an increasingly complex and ever-changing world is a major challenge facing organizations today; add in the generational divide and the challenge for managers increases tenfold. 

Learning & Development is introducing two new programs to help managers understand the generational divide and develop the skills required to successfully manage four generations at work.

Popular "Managing Me" program returns for Fall 2011

In June 2011, Learning & Development piloted a new program, "Managing Me", to campus Admins.  Over 25 people participated in the program and the feedback was terrific.  People told us we had to bring the program back, and so we are pleased to announce we will offer "Managing Me" for a second time in October 2011.

"Managing Me" is a workload and time management program that helps individuals do more with less, execute on strategic priorities, and stay engaged by raising the bar in how you plan, focus, organize and manage expectations.
