Happy American Heart Health Month and the start of a new semester!
In February, our wellness initiative is focused on heart health and we offer a Cardio 101 class with Alea Burke in the RAC for all ages and life stages. We continue our Work-Life Wellbeing series with a custom built program on Discovering Your Work-Life Balance based on focus group feedback. We also continue our Communication series with Active Listening, a session in collaboration with Bowie State.
February Training Calendar
Attached is a PDF of our February Training Opportunities. This PDF has links to register for each of the events listed. We look forward to seeing you at many of these events to engage you in our community of learning.
A few events of particular note in our February calendar are:
We continue our series on Work-Life Wellbeing. Throughout the spring, we will have one event per month that will focus on the balance we all strive to hold between our work lives and our home lives. February will focus on that integration of the two facets of our lives with Work-Life Wellbeing: Discovering Your Work-Life Balance. This is an experiential 3-hour session that moves the participant from abstract to creating an individualized plan of action.
We have revamped our PMP Training for Supervisors and are rolling out sessions on both February 16th and March 14th with Michale S. Tallon, Director of Employee/Labor Relations. If you are a new supervisor looking for training in anticipation of giving your first PMP, or a seasoned manager looking for a refresher, this is the training for you!
Also in February, we will continue our series on communication skills with Active Listening. This session is a collaboration with Mary Ogan from Bowie State and will be open to both campuses.
Coming up in March, our collaboration with the USM Learning & Talent Development Committee will bring a mini-conference on Performance Review Prep! This half day mini-conference pulls sessions from our EAP Provider, Guidance Resources and ComPsych and includes sessions for both supervisors and their staff to get ready for productive PMP discussions.
