Professional Development Programs

A Strong Front-line Secures the Bottom Line.

The UD Center for Leadership offers 80+ Professional Development programs each year for new and experienced supervisors, managers and professionals at all levels of an organization looking to sharpen their leadership skills.

High-caliber, subject-matter experts from the Dayton Region and beyond are carefully chosen to present cutting-edge information and provide opportunities for leaders to practice new skills in a workshop format. Participants gain thought-provoking leadership content that can be taken back to the workplace and applied, in order to make an immediate impact. 

  • Tackle leadership and management challenges that give you a powerful advantage for some of the most competitive positions.
  • Develop an array of skills including assertiveness, decision-making, team building, communication skills, conflict management and many others.
  • Build relationships with local and regional thought leaders.
  • Establish a network with other supervisors, managers and frontline professionals.

Whether you are an experienced professional looking to make an impact or an organization looking to train and retain key talent, Professional Development programs help managers and professionals at all levels. These one-day workshops, led by local and regional thought leaders, enable leaders to acquire and practice new skills that they can immediately apply.

The instructional modes in which the Professional Development programs will be facilitated are blended and virtual. This is noted below next to each class.

  • Blended: Combined in-person/on-campus and streamed live via Zoom with the facilitator being in person. We made changes in the physical configurations of our classrooms to meet social distancing guidelines required by public health guidelines.
  • Virtually: Available via Zoom.
