June registration open for courses in new manager certificate program

June registration open for courses in new manager certificate program

June 9, 2023


Earlier this year, Human Resources launched a new certificate program designed to help managers lead healthy and well teams at work. The new certificate – Enhancing Wellbeing and Preventing Burnout – has been thoughtfully designed and tailored for managers at Queen’s and is available at no cost. There are currently over 120 managers registered in the certificate program, with over 70 people expected to complete the program by the end of June. 

The certificate features five courses that cover a wide range of topics related to leadership skills, burnout prevention, and enhancing wellbeing. Throughout the program, managers will learn the signs and symptoms of burnout, proactive strategies to avoid burnout, coaching and mentorship strategies to enhance wellbeing, and ways to promote and foster a healthy work life balance, particularly in a hybrid work environment.

June registration remains open for the following courses:

Burnout: Signs, Symptoms, and Prevention
Greg Simmons, Wellness and Engagement Coordinator

All courses will be held in-person this summer at the Staff and Student Learning Centre in Stauffer Library and offer an opportunity to network with other managers from across the university. While courses have been designed as part of the certificate program, they can be taken separately and are available for registration on a course-by-course basis.

Registration for the certificate program and courses is available on the HR Intranet. Questions about the program can be directed to greg.simmons@queensu.ca.
