"It takes courage and determination to advance an organization to the next level," said Kim Recker, program manager for the UNI Executive Development Center. "This workshop will teach participants strategies to improve employees' performance at all levels."
Instructor Patrick Langan will use Jim Collins' best-selling book "Good to Great" to evaluate what leaders need to move their organizations forward and make them great. He also will introduce the idea that adjusting expectations can improve employee performance.
