CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Registration is now open for the management workshop "Survival Skills for First-Time Managers" hosted by the University of Northern Iowa Executive Development Center. The workshop is 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sept. 20, in the Business and Community Services Building on the UNI campus. The registration deadline is Sept. 13.

This workshop is boot camp for first-time managers, according to Kim Recker, program manager for the UNI Executive Development Center.

Instructor Jim Hogan will introduce the management skills and tools needed to have a successful career. He will help workshop participants identify their natural leadership style, which allows an understanding of the differences between how people manage and how they like to be managed, and teach them how to adapt their communication style. Practical conflict resolution skills also will be covered.

The workshop cost is $249 per person. UNI Alumni Association members receive a 10-percent discount. Businesses can purchase a consortium membership for $995, which entitles the business to five seats to any of the 2011 management training workshops. Half-day workshops count as a half seat. After the five seats are used, additional seats can be purchased at a discounted rate of $175 per person.
