Becoming a Better Manager

When: June 3, 2015, 9:30am - 4:30pm

Where: Trinity College, Hartford, CT

Instructor: Maria Bernier, Connecticut State Library

Description: Designed for the new manager, this workshop will focus on the management of people and problems. We’ll talk about the role of the manager, managing up as well as down, hiring, performance management, evaluation, letting someone go, and managing yourself. The workshop will also cover methods for dealing with non-personnel problems.

Please come to the workshop with your questions, and be ready to share scenarios and experiences with the best and worst bosses you’ve had, observed or heard about. Often discussing real life examples leads to solutions for others!

Refreshments: A continental breakfast and sandwiches for lunch will be provided as part of your registration fee. Please inform us of any food allergies you have.

About the Instructor: Maria Bernier earned her MBA while working as the University Archivist at Salve Regina University in Newport, RI, and later served as the Assistant Director of the Redwood Library & Athenaeum in Newport where she directly and indirectly supervised 16 employees. She now works for the Connecticut State Library as a grant administrator.
