Our Professional Development Services

Staff Development is a division of Human Resources. Our team provides training, development, organizational effectiveness consulting, and other services:

  • To help individual employees meet their educational and professional development goals and needs,
  • To assist departments in achieving team effectiveness and communication, and
  • To identify, and facilitate the meeting of, institutional training and development needs
  • To track participation in professional development opportunities for your Professional Development Report

We offer training sessions each year on a wide range of topics. Our training professionals also partner with individual departments in the development of customized programs to meet specific needs, and collaborate with other training and development units in the design and offering of programs.

Learning Opportunity Catalog 

Each year Staff Development offers approximately 180 learning opportunities to meet the training and development needs of the GRCC faculty and support staff community. Ideas for these classes come from a variety of sources. Learning Plans, conducted every year, help identify staff professional development needs. The results of these Learning Plans guide the development of the catalog class schedule. Additionally, literature reviews and web searches identify timely and important topics to be developed into classes. Ideas for classes are always welcome.

Departmental Programming

Contact Staff Development to discuss your departmental programming needs. Learning opportunities from the development catalog can be brought to departments or customized programs can be designed to meet your workgroup’s specific needs. We also carry certification in the DiSC® behavioral profile and the StrengthsFinder® assessment from the Gallup Organization.
