Managing to the Mission (Session 2 of 2)

Cardiac Center, Auditorium
3006 Webster Plaza, Omaha, NE

Wednesday, April 22, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Managing a team isn't easy and sometimes the challenges managers have with team members are not easy to navigate. This two-part series will help untangle some common management challenges and explore the intersection of mission and management here at Creighton. Participants will also meet other managers from around the university who will be able to relate and may even offer ideas.
While the foundation of this session is consistent, the interaction and discussion are never the same for any two class cohorts. This course is ideal for all managers-new or experienced. It will even provide value to managers who have attended the course previously.
The manager in each division, unit, department, program is responsible for understanding the mission of the university and contributing to it in and through the way he or she leads. This two-part series will explore what leadership in this Jesuit tradition looks like. Case studies will help illustrate how this is done concretely.
Participants will leave this session:
• With a renewed sense of the mission of the university and the role of the manager in contributing to the mission.
• Understanding Ignatian Leadership.
• Having explored concrete examples in group discussion of cases that draw out this style of leadership.
• Being able to apply this style of leadership to their own leadership challenges.
Creighton Leadership Values and Behaviors:
• Commitment to our Mission
• Cura
• Collaboration
• Creativity
