8/22/2002

FORT MYERS, FL - Managers and employees from both the private and public sectors are invited to attend a one-day workshop “Meeting the Challenges of a Middle Manager” presented by the Florida Institute of Government at Florida Gulf Coast University from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 13 at the FGCU Broadcast Building Room 111.

     Objectives:

     Strategies for problem solving

     Producing measurable results

     Examining responsibility vs. authority

     Communicating effectively

     Using facilitative skills to motivate staff

     Navigating the political rapids in the workplace
