New professional development courses introduced for supervisors and managers

Attention all supervisors and managers at Johns Hopkins: There are new opportunities to explore for boosting your professional development.

For those starting off in these leadership positions, the Hopkins Essential program is a revamped offering for getting up to speed on JHU's inner workings.

Meanwhile, those in continuing supervisory and manager roles can pursue two new training programs for advancing their skills.

With the latter, your first step is using this tool to determine whether the Supervisor Development Program or the Manager Development Program is the right fit.

Each of the training programs consists of seven instructor-led courses—four core classes and three electives of your choice—covering topics such as cultural awareness, communication tactics, workplace politics, and organizational skills. The classes are offered year-round and have no required order, so you can customize according to your schedule.

Check out the full plate of offerings for the Supervisor Development Program here, or the Manager Development Program here.

For new supervisors and managers, the Hopkins Essentials curriculum offers a primer on JHU policies through seven core courses on topics including employment law, work safety, and performance management. The program—which is required by JHU for supervisors and managers within their first two years on the job—replaces the Supervisory Training Program.

All the programs are offered through JHU's Learning Solutions. More information, including class descriptions and enrollment forms, is available online here. Questions? Email
