Employee Learning and Development
       A Message from the Employee Learning and Development Team
       The Employee Learning and Development Team understands that individual job roles will change as UNC Charlotte
       grows. Whether you are being challenged to embrace a new way of processing information, the re-organization of
       your unit, or personnel changes in your department or a department you work with closely, we hope you will seek to
       acquire, improve and master skills that will help you grow within your job and reach your developmental goals.

We are pleased to announce that selected Employee Learning and Development programs will now be held in the Foundation Building (see page
29 for map). We are excited to offer programs in this new, state-of-the art training location! As we make this transition, when you complete the
online workshop registration form, please note Item 3. Item 3 will identify the location of the program. For a complete listing of Fall Employee
Learning and Development programs, please see page 5. New programs are highlighted below.

Certificate in Grants and Contracts Administration
This program was one of several begun as part of the Research Administration Project (RAP). The Project’s initiatives focused on easing the admin-
istrative burden on faculty in the management of their grants and contracts, and helping faculty successfully obtain and conduct the research and
projects funded by their grants and contracts. With that goal in mind, we now have a certificate program for departmental administrators. For
the 2010-2011 academic year only, participants will be required to have completed the first five of the eight prerequisites prior to enrolling in the
Certificate in Grants and Contracts Administration. The last three prerequisites can be completed concurrently during the year. For the 2011-2012
academic year and beyond, all participants will have to complete all eight prerequisites prior to enrolling in the program. See page 8 for a listing
of prerequisites and programming information.

Change Management
Human Resources is launching its newest core competency development series, Change Management. Understanding Organizational Change
will serve as the prerequisite to all future Change Management workshops. This series will focus on how to constructively and collaboratively
accept challenges to the status quo to improve performance and enhance the campus culture. During Change Management workshops, we will
explore potential barriers and thus, strategies to acknowledge and understand the changes our university faces. We plan to offer this prerequisite
workshop twice during the Fall semester - details are on page 20. Be sure to complete Understanding Organizational Change in order to attend
two new workshops we will be offering in the spring: Ready, Set, Go for non-supervisory employees and Managing Change for supervisors.

                                 Health and Wellness
                                 In light of recent legislation requiring the State Health Plan to develop a Comprehensive Wellness Initiative UNC
                                 Charlotte has chartered an Advisory Committee to the Chancellor for Employee Health and Wellness (ACCEHW).
                                 The wellness initiative is designed to encourage employees to take responsibility for their health and well-being
                                 by engaging in healthy behaviors. In support of this initiative, Employee Learning and Development will now be
                                 offering a new set of workforce development workshops centered on Health and Wellness. This semester we will
                                 feature Fit in Fitness and Healthy Holiday Appetizers. Both programs are endorsed by ACCEHW. See page 12 for
                                 dates and times.

Managing Processes for Operational Excellence
A new leadership workshop is being offered for employees and managers to learn process improvement. By understanding the management of
business processes, you will be able to determine which processes use significant time and resources. These processes are good candidates for im-
provement. A definition of process management and its importance will be explored during this workshop. See page 18 for a course description.

Personal Safety Awareness
Police and Public Safety work to assure safe working conditions, and that begins with personal awareness. In the newest 49erConnect module,
you will learn how to identify dangers and improve upon workplace safety. Instructions for accessing Personal Safety Awareness can be found
on page 28.

Nobody likes having difficult, even uncomfortable conversations with employees. The easy way out for many people is to
simply avoid the conversation in hopes that the problem – whether it involves performance, behavior/attitude issues, personal
hygiene or something else – will just go away. The result: problems magnify and the supervisor’s credibility suffers. If you’re a
supervisor or manager you must be prepared to have difficult, even uncomfortable conversations with employees. It’s part of
the territory. This workshop provides you with a systematic approach for handling the conversations and issues that people
frequently avoid or execute with disappointing results. The workshop’s focus is about managing the difficult conversation and
increasing the likelihood that it will be productive and have a positive outcome. Tools, techniques and conversational
processes will be illustrated to increase your effectiveness when faced with a difficult conversation.

This is the first time in history we have had four generations of individuals actively working together at the same time in the
workplace. Each generation has its own shared history, common biases and core beliefs. The question is, “How do we learn to
work together more effectively in light of these differences?” During this workshop, you will learn how to work more
effectively together despite our diverse backgrounds by gaining insight into: what each generation is looking for, how to
interact more respectfully with each other, and what information each uses in making decisions and what is important.
