CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Registration is now open for the management workshop "Superstar Hunt: Finding and Grooming Tomorrow's Leaders," hosted by the University of Northern Iowa Executive Development Center. The workshop is 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday, May 3, in the Business and Community Services Building on the UNI campus. The registration deadline is April 26.

During this workshop, instructor Jim Hogan will discuss the role a retiring manager plays in successful succession planning and how managers can assess staff and identify high-performers who will be ready to lead. Participants will develop transition plans that include training employees for new responsibilities, and they will review tools that will help assess, prepare and expedite the implementation of a succession plan.

The workshop cost is $249 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. After the 10 seats are used, additional seats can be purchased at a discounted rate of $175 per person.
