CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Registration is now open for the management workshop "I Hate People," hosted by the University of Northern Iowa's Executive Development Center. The workshop is scheduled 8:30 a.m. to noon, July 19, in the Business and Community Services Building on the UNI campus. The registration deadline is Thursday, July 12.

No matter how small or large an organization, eventually employees work with people they can't stand. At times strong leaders are part of a team that accomplishes less than what they could by themselves, and leaders settle for mediocre results just to keep the peace with the team. During this workshop, instructor Amy Campbell will help participants develop tactics to work cooperatively and productively with coworkers and will review strategies to get work done in an environment that's polluted by time-wasters, interrupters and lazy colleagues.

The cost is $125 per person. UNI Alumni Association members receive a 10-percent discount. Businesses can purchase a consortium membership for $995, which entitles the business five seats to any of the 2012 management training workshops. Half-day workshops only count as a half seat. After the five seats are used, additional seats can be purchased at a discounted rate of $175 per seat.

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