DURHAM – Leading in today’s workplace isn't easy. Successful leaders must now be well-rounded professionals able to conquer any challenge thrown their way.


University of New Hampshire Professional Development & Training will host its 12th Annual Conference for Managers, Supervisors, Project and Team Leaders at the Wentworth by the Sea in New Castle on Monday, March 19 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The program, “Dimensions of Leadership,” will feature eight presentations that dive into traits and attributes required of all managers, supervisors, and project managers for leadership success.


Presented by industry experts Gina Abudi, Janet Edmunson, Peter Hughes, J.T. O’Donnell, and Lynne Richards, topics will include creating a high-performing workplace, problem solving, team building, managing effective group meetings, flexibility, coaching employees, dealing with poor performance, and workplace collaboration.


“We are excited to offer The Dimensions of Leadership conference again this spring, which will focus on the same current leadership challenges, with some new approaches mixed in,” said Juliet Webber, Program Developer with UNH Professional Development & Training. “This conference consistently sells out, which speaks to the relevance of the topics offered, as well as the expertise of the speakers.”


The conference cost is $329 and includes breakfast, lunch, parking, and all conference materials. For more information and to register, visit https://training.unh.edu/leadershipconference or call (603) 862-7380.
