CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Registration is now open for the management workshop "Only as Strong as Your Weakest Link: Building a Strong, Effective Team" hosted by the University of Northern Iowa Executive Development Center. The workshop is 12:30  to 4 p.m., April 14, in the Business and Community Services Building on the UNI campus. The registration deadline is April 7.

"Working in a team can be difficult, especially with so many different personalities and ways of accomplishing a goal," said Kim Recker, program manager for the UNI Executive Development Center. "Often good ideas are diluted in order to keep peace within a team."

Participants will learn how to use conflict in a constructive way and encourage creativity and ingenuity within a working group. Instructor Vickie Robinson will show how to harness a team's power by identifying team members' strengths and weaknesses.

The cost is $125 per person. UNI Alumni Association members receive a 10-percent discount. Businesses can purchase a consortium membership for $1,999, which entitles the business to 10 seats to any of the 2011 management training workshops. Half-day workshops count as a half seat.

The Executive Development Center is a program of Business and Community Services, a division of the UNI College of Business Administration.
