Skill Development

There's a saying that has been attributed to many authors, and we in HR have found it to be true. When performance is measured, performance improves, and when it's measured and reported back, performance improves significantly. Establishing a system of reporting and measuring managerial and leadership performance will help you to increase your managerial skills and ability consistently over time. One of the traits of highly successful people is that they have learned to build on their strengths.  Purdue’s department of leadership and organizational development can assist you in discovering your managerial strengths through managerial assessment and coaching.
