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., Aug. 1, in the Business and Community Services Building on the UNI campus. The registration deadline is July 25.

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 $995, which entitles the business to five seats to any of the 2012 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.
