The workshop is 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., May 15, in the Business and Community Services Building on the UNI campus. The registration deadline is May 8.

Becoming a manager requires a specific skill set, and 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 begin a successful career as a leader. He will help participants define and understand the difference between managing people and managing work.

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 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 person.
