Project Management: In an environment where projects are often assigned to a group of individuals who may or may not work together, whose project leader may or may not hold a position of authority, the skill of being able to guide a project successfully from beginning to end is even more important. This program will provide tools to successfully manage any project at CC, regardless of its size or makeup of the team. Participants will also learn how to mentor others to lead projects.

Presenter: Lyrae Williams, Associate Vice President for Institutional Planning & Effectiveness

Managing Effective Meetings: Recent research suggests that on any given day 17 million meetings are held and that one-third of a manager’s time is spent in meetings. This session will give participants the skills for getting the most value from their meetings.
