We're a nationally recognized leadership center just out your back door.
Because of the unique and dynamic environment of the nonprofit community, traditional approaches to training and development aren't always readily available. The tight budgets and long hours leave little time for professional and/or leadership development. While traditional organizations are able to dedicate significant resources to these efforts, nonprofit organizations can be limited in their access to such amenities.
Here at the Center for the Advancement of Leadership at Utah Valley University we provide an affordable and convenient approach to satisfying these training and development needs through the Leadership Development Series.
This series draws upon the resources of UVU and features speakers with expertise in an array of topics relevant to the nonprofit world. UVU's own faculty present on topics that include "best practices in accounting", "maximizing the interview and hiring process", "professional networking", "leveraging the benefits of social media", "human resources best practices", and many more. These convenient one-hour sessions are offered to help you make the most of your nonprofit organization.
Join us at The Leadership Development Series, held regularly on the third Tuesday of every month at UVU's satellite campus in Canyon Park.
Emerging Trends and Strategic Elements of the Hiring and Interview Process
This session will address proven best practices and principles of effective employee selection with a focus on effective interviewing and an application of the “Moneyball” approach to strategically meeting your organization’s staffing needs.
This session will describe the recruiter's role in the recruitment process, identify the elements of the selection process, define ways to measure the success of the selection method, compare the common methods used for selecting human resources, and discuss how to conduct effective interviews.
Before attending the session, please consider the following questions: how do we consistently attract the best available talent to fill our human capital needs, do we know who our most talented performs are, do we have a handle on future needs for leadership, and do our job assignments fit our employee's talents and skills?

Human Resources: Leveraging the Human Element
In this session, participants will learn to effectively network, build strong customer relations, and retain long-term relationships. Leaders sometime look past their followers and focus exclusively on the task at hand, however, without good human relations, it's hard to lead a team effectively.
