Training & Development

S.M.A.R.T. Workshops

Successfully Managing & Retaining Talent (S.M.A.R.T.) Workshops

S.MART workshops provide training on two intertwined subject areas: 1) legal requirements of applicable contracts, policies and laws; and 2) interpersonal skills and management techniques. As supervisors and managers, you must operate in a complex web of job descriptions; union contracts; local and system-wide university policy; and, of course, state and federal law. You need to know how to hire, train, supervisor, and discipline employees, while helping them to perform and develop.

A complete course listing of SMART Workshops is available for review: SMART Workshops Menu

These workshops are open to Supervisors and managers only and are offered by UCSB Employee & Labor Relations.  Check the current flyer to see which workshops are being offered:
