Change Management for Supervisors and Administrators

***Next Session TBD***

Presented by Nancy F. Myers, Organization Development

The change driven by budget reduction at the University is challenging us to think and lead in different ways.  This seminar will examine some of the broad campus wide change we are experiencing and explore ways to best comprehend and lead change. 

  • Changing the paradigm – How we are challenged to think differently about the way the University works
  • Working across campus boundaries (within UNL and across 4 campuses)
  • Matrix systems, dual reporting and campus wide strategy –  Creating a bigger picture
  • Mobile Technology and the ability for people to work/teach virtually anywhere

This seminar will focus on:

  • Making sense of change initiatives, even when there is not a lot of detail
  • Effective ways to lead when managing a new or virtual team
  • During change, building a coaching model to support employees
  • Hands-on case studies dealing with change in higher education
