ULEAD offers a variety of course options, with each designed to focus on the different tenures and experiences of individuals working as managers and supervisors.

UD has partnered with Development Dimensional International Inc. (DDI) and will use a competency-based, integrated approach to delivering a range of management courses.

According to Tom LaPenta, UD’s chief human resources officer, “These training programs will equip managers and supervisors at all levels of our organization with the day-to-day, interpersonal skills for leading individuals and groups as well as providing them with the broader skills needed to create and maintain a high-performing workplace.”

Courses will be taught by both DDI facilitators and Human Resources’ staff members who have completed the DDI facilitator certification process.

The goal of the ULEAD program is to provide learning opportunities, strengthen leadership abilities and performance, and promote networking.
