Happy New Year!
It is our wish for everyone on campus to have a happy and healthy 2023! Make the coming year your best yet! In January, we start with a focus on individual health, goals, and plans. We then round out the month with a continuation of our series on communication skills and DEIB. We look forward to using the January winter break to help you all set aspirations, gain insights, and set actions into motion.
Winter Wellness Recordings Available
The USM Learning and Talent Development Committee's Winter Wellness day-long program was held on December 20th. There were 14 sessions to choose from and now you do not need to make a choice; ALL of the sessions have been recorded and will be available to view here.
January Training Calendar
Attached is a PDF of our January 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.
Two events of particular note in our January calendar are:
We begin a 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. January will focus on the personal side of our lives with Life Planning. February will bring a session on Work-Life Wellbeing: Worklife Balance Integration. That session explores topics gathered during recent focus groups.
Also in January, we will explore the intersection of two of our series, communication skills and DEIB, with a crossover session on Intercultural Communication. Future planned sessions include Active Listening and Unconscious Bias. Stay tuned!
Please share the attached flier with all that we may be able to serve.
