Second Leadership Class on Communications Skills Held for Supervisors


George L. Hanbury II, Ph.D , NSU president and Athornia Steele, J.D., dean of NSU’s Shepard Broad Law Center talk during a break at the Communications Skills workshop.



“Lots of participation” and “some fun” are two ways to characterize the module for leadership communications held Oct. 7. This was the second module for NSU leaders from all over the campuses created as a response from Recent “I Believe in NSU” Employee Surveys and Town Hall meetings to create programs that would enhance the skills of NSU supervisors.

Marlisa Santos, Ph.D., from the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences, and Robert Preziosi, D.P.A., from the H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship, conducted a leadership communication skills workshop for supervisors.  Santos and Preziosi discussed such topics as non-verbal communication, active listening, e-mail writing skills, collaboration in the workplace, selling ideas, and strategies for feedback to supervisees.

A Task Force appointed by the University created a training curriculum to develop leaders who will help propel NSU toward premiere status among peers in higher education. The ultimate goal of the program is to train supervisors in skills that will assist NSU achieve Vision 2020.

The modules include Legal Employment Issues & Management Philosophy/Expectations,” “Communication Skills,” “Managing Conflict/Change,” “Measurement/Project Management,” and “Leadership Visioning & Planning,” following the first workshop.  Content specialists for each module have been selected from within NSU’s extensive cadre of experts.

The current classes, comprised of 48 NSU leaders who supervise three or more personnel, are piloting the classes for future supervisors to take.  For more information please contact Maureen Simunek-Appelt, M.B.A., Learning Manager, NSU Office of Human Resources at 954 262-7869 or maureens@nsu.nova.edu.
