Training and Development
The University of Missouri-Kansas City recognizes that its faculty and staff are our most important resources. The role of the UMKC training and development team is to develop, promote and provide learning opportunities to support employees and organizational growth. We welcome any feedback or content suggestions for any future training sessions.
Professional Development is designed to support staff and faculty in managing and growing in their professional careers. Understanding goals, strengths and competencies are essential for ongoing success.
Leadership development is designed to develop and support faculty, managers and supervisors of staff. In managing talent our goal is to preserve the outcomes of our continual learning environment which encourages engagement, commitment and pride in work. Current and emerging leaders will remain prepared to respond to the ever-changing world and sustain the objectives of UMKC in today’s highly competitive environment.
Professional Development Coaching
Coaching is a journey of professional discovery and growth. As a manager you are influencing, developing and retaining precious resources – your staff by defining expected outcomes and providing continual feedback. As staff, you are working hard to make a difference in your position and may be focused on future opportunities on campus. Knowing your strengths, interests and motivations are key ingredients to determine your next step.
Additional Training Opportunities
Our goal in HR is to increase the visibility of all training and development opportunities on campus. As a result you will find training events hosted by various campus departments and external organizations on the HR training site.
