Michigan State University is a leading research institution that aims to make the world a better place by solving current and future problems through research and education. MSU relies on support staff to enable these efforts on a daily basis. However, with so many departments and employees, it’s not surprising that employees can lose sight of the university’s greater purpose.
It’s only human for individuals of an organization to become disinterested or unengaged in their work if they are not invested in the success of their employer. The upcoming Professional Development course, “Creating a Culture of Commitment,” provides supervisors with the tools to inspire employees to contribute to the success of departments within MSU, and the university as a whole.
Attending this course can assist supervisors with the continuous feedback, coaching and development stage of Performance Excellence, as well. Supervisors will learn how to motivate employees during this stage with the knowledge that their individual work strengthens their department, which in turn supports the ongoing efforts of MSU.
“Creating a Culture of Commitment” is Thursday, April 28, from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.
