Managing at UBC

Managing at UBC is a program designed to support new managers in their first year, recognizing the significant responsibility they hold for employee performance and engagement and achievement of unit goals.

On Ourselves

Our relationship with self is the most important relationship that shapes our learning. Each of us is formed by our beliefs, values, and life experiences that strongly influence how we see ourselves. This tacit knowledge of ourselves, which determines what we do, learn, and undertake, can expand or limit our endeavours.

Just as looking in a mirror offers us a reflection of ourselves, the self category of workshops is designed to provide opportunities for us to become aware of what we understand about ourselves and how this impacts our reality. Whether we choose to change something or not, knowing why we do what we do allows us to see the world as a place where choices are possible.

On Relationships with Others

Our relationship with others is the flip side of our relationship with self. Very often, the way we initiate interaction with others is influenced by the way we see ourselves, as well as the kind of interactions to which we too have been exposed.

This category is all about becoming aware of and moving along the continuum between frustration over differences, through understanding and coping with conflicting views or practices, to appreciating and creating value by learning from others? differences. The others category of workshops is designed to provide opportunities for us to reflect on our relationship with our peers and colleagues and to discover individual and collective insights on how we can work together.

On Roles and Responsibilities

Our relationship with the role(s) and responsibilities we have at work is one of the most visible relationships that shapes our learning. Here we are seeking the skills and knowledge we need to acquire or enhance so we can play our part and contribute according to the standards of our position.

The role category of workshops is designed to provide opportunities for us to become aware of what common practices are shared by people having similar roles as well as what changes we can make to increase our effectiveness and to perform our jobs to the best of our ability.
