9:00 AM - 12:30 PM The A.R.T. of Interviewing for Hiring Managers

UHR is proud to partner with Developmental Dimensions International (DDI) to bring their 40+ years' experience in skills development to the UMD campus. This 4-day intensive walks participants through the entire talent management life-cycle starting with the A.R.T. of Interviewing for Hiring Managers, Setting Goals and Reviewing Results, Addressing Poor Performance, and Engaging and Retaining Talent. You may register for each session individually. Register for all 4 courses and receive a $100 discount! Complete all four courses to earn your UHR Talent Management Certificate!


Research shows that how an interviewer conducts interviews has a huge impact on an organization in terms of its reputation as an employer of choice and the quality of hires. However, the vast majority of resources on the topic are aimed only at the job seeker, while advice to interviewers is hard to find. 


This course focuses learners on the responsibility of the interviewer to provide the job candidate with a quality experience and explores the consequences of interviewer behaviors. It raises the learners’ awareness of the important role that they play and equips them with skills to run an effective interview that yields meaningful behavioral data.


Successfully completing The A.R.T. of Interviewing will enable learners to: 

Make the interview a positive experience for the applicant. 

Avoid interview questions that waste time or are potentially illegal. 

Collect usable, specific data about an applicant’s past behavior and use it to predict future behavior in the workplace. 

Identify people who are likely to stay with the organization over time. 

Leverage what they’ve learned about a candidate to accelerate new-hire engagement. 


This is the first course in the Strategies for Talent Management Certificate program.

Cost: $150

9:00 AM - 12:30 PM Setting Goals and Reviewing Results

This course will show the positive effect of shifting the traditional role of planner and evaluator from the leader, to a shared responsibility between leader and employee. This shift builds employee ownership and allows the leader to focus on coaching and developing throughout the performance cycle. Leaders will experience how to use effective (SMART) goals to help them and their employees track progress and fairly evaluate outcomes. A well-written performance plan is also a powerful tool for leaders to use when determining where to focus their development and coaching discussions with their employees.

Do You Face Any of These Issues?

  • Are leaders bearing all the responsibility for monitoring, collecting, and analyzing performance data?
  • Do leaders spend too much time coaching for improvement due to employees’ lack of commitment to a performance plan?
  • Do employees go into performance reviews with a fear of the unknown?

Performance Objectives

Helps leaders:

  • Ensure direct reports take a more active role in managing their performance.
  • Manage performance on an ongoing basis while working within the organization’s time parameters for goal setting and performance reviews.
  • Provide the ongoing coaching and feedback your direct reports need to achieve their goals.
  • Increase your direct reports’ confidence and commitment to their own success.

This is the second course in the Strategies for Talent Management Certificate program.

9:00 AM - 12:30 PM Addressing Poor Performance

A single employee with chronic performance problems can dominate a leader's time, and drag down the productivity and morale of an entire work group.

This course builds leaders’ skills in handling chronic performance problems. They learn how to document and present a solid case for needed improvement and use effective interaction skills. Leaders identify the steps to take after the performance problem discussion to provide ongoing feedback and support, and determine if it is necessary to impose formal consequences.

Do You Face Any of These Issues?

  • Are your leaders ill-prepared to conduct performance problem discussions?
  • Do they fail to gather and document the specific and accurate performance data they need?
  • Can your leaders defuse strong emotions when discussing performance problems?
  • Do employees understand why their performance doesn’t meet expectations and what will happen if they don’t improve?

Performance Objectives

Helps leaders:

  • Effectively address poor performance in a firm, fair, and consistent manner.
  • Minimize the impact of chronic performance problems on people, productivity, and profitability.
  • Provide problem performers with a clear understanding of what they must do to improve and the consequences of failing to do so.
Encourage people to take ownership of, and be accountable for, improving their work performance.

This is the third course in the Strategies for Talent Management Certificate program.

9:00 AM - 12:30 PM (Cancelled) Strategies for Retaining Talent

Research tells us that employee engagement is the primary enabler behind the successful execution of any business strategy. This course provides leaders with a model to determine what motivates each individual’s job satisfaction, as well as methods for proactive talent retention. Participants learn how to interact with team members in a way that drives retention. They explore ways to offer recognition and create positive work environment using no-cost easy tactics you can start using today!

Do You Face Any of These Issues?

  • Do your leaders provide what people most value in the workplace?
  • Is your organization losing some of its best and brightest employees?
  • Is turnover high because employees feel they’re being under-utilized and will have greater opportunities elsewhere?
  • Are your leaders equipped to recognize disengaged employees and address the associated challenges?

Performance Objectives

Helps leaders:

  • Engage individuals on a daily basis.
  • Uncover and address what individuals need to be more satisfied at work.
  • Inspire higher levels of retention by acknowledging the value people bring to the organization and showing them that they matter.
  • Increase the quality of conversations with people about their retention and intent to stay.
