Program Description:

As an elected official, you will address many challenges in the months ahead as you work with others to create a local government that meets the needs of your constituents.  The Elected Officials Academy program offers an educational opportunity for elected officials to enhance their leadership and decision making skills.  After attending this seminar, you will be able to 1) participate in a meeting following the guidelines of Parliamentary procedure, 2) follow the regulations of the Open Meetings Act (OMA)  3) understand the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and how to respond to those requests and  4) be able to identify your roles and responsibilities as an elected official.   You and the citizens you serve will benefit from the information that you will acquire and you will be better able to carry out your duties.

Nancy Ohle, Organizational Development and Training

 

Supervisory Skills Part III Registration

 

As a supervisor, you constantly work toward building a high performance team.  When building your "dream team", some days will be positive as you coach and motivate your staff, and others will be spent managing conflict and the risk associated with a hostile work environment.  This workshop will look at the stages your team may go through on its journey toward high performance, what you can do as a supervisor to provide your employees with the support they need at each stage of development, and tools for motivation.  Next we will discuss your role in managing conflict as well as recognizing the difference between healthy conflict and "hostile work environment or bullying" which can leave your city at risk of litigation.   Come prepared to discuss your stars as well as your challenging employees so we can exchange your secrets toward success!
