CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Registration is now open for the management workshop "Going the Extra Mile — How Small Things Have a Big Impact" hosted by the University of Northern Iowa Executive Development Center. The workshop is 8:30 a.m. to noon, April 18, in the Business and Community Services Building on the UNI campus. The registration deadline is April 11.

"Small things have a big impact on results," said Kim Recker, program manager for the UNI Executive Development Center. "Being persistent and going the extra mile can reap exponential rewards for businesses and in an individual's professional and personal lives."

During this workshop, instructor Dewitt Jones will show participants how to create awareness and accountability in themselves and their direct reports by understanding the value of extra effort. He also will identify opportunities where the extra effort at work will add more value to participants' customers, companies and careers.           

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 2012 management training workshops. Half-day workshops count as a half seat. After the 10 seats are used, additional seats can be purchased at a discounted rate of $175 per seat.
