FSU Employee Development & Leadership Series

2015 Application details will be announced soon.

In 2014, the Office of Human Resources, in collaboration with the College of Business Center for Leadership Development, established a development and leadership series for high performing staff and faculty at Frostburg State University. The initiative provides up-and-coming leaders at the university with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in their current roles and prepares them for potential leadership roles in higher education. The series consists of eight workshops. Each day focuses on a different topic and outcomes that have been identified in collaboration with current campus leaders and based upon the Frostburg State University Leadership Competency model. In addition, participants have the opportunity to learn about the different divisions and structures of the university and the University System of MD through panel discussions and presentations provided by division leaders.

The Goals of the Series:

  1. To enhance participant knowledge, skills, and competencies in leadership while developing their ability to manage change.
  2. To improve supervisory skills, methods and practices.
  3. To increase the individual’s awareness of his/her supervisory style and develop/increase the ability to adapt to different styles of behavior.
  4. To raise awareness of conflict styles and effective approaches to conflict resolution.
  5. To build a fundamental understanding of current employment, labor laws and regulations that impact the workplace.
  6. To assist participants in developing the ability to manage an increasingly diverse workforce and assist in fostering an inclusive workplace environment characterized by fairness, understanding, and mutual respect and civility.

We encourage interested, high performing individuals and their supervisors to discuss the relevance of this program to the employee’s development.  In order to qualify for the program candidates must meet the following criteria:
