The ANR Budget Office is pleased to announce the launch of “Rate and Recharge : Step by Step”, a website designed to help Units successfully use recharge rates at ANR. Units that currently operate recharge centers or are interested in establishing them will find useful information including:
- Step by step instructions for planning, submitting, and monitoring rates
- A single location for forms, tools, and contacts
- Video examples of how to complete required forms
- An on-line assessment to test existing skills and knowledge
The website is part of a continuing effort on behalf of the Budget Office to provide training resources and ensure policy compliance. Earlier this year, “Understanding Rate and Recharge” a basic introduction to why ANR uses rates was developed and this summer an assessment requirement will be introduced for anyone responsible for submitting rates at ANR.
The website can be found from the homepage of the ANR Budget Office website and from the ANR Training website. It was developed in collaboration with Financial Services and CSIT’s Instructional Systems Design team. If you have comments or questions about this training, please contact Joni Rippee at firstname.lastname@example.org or (510)987-0136.
On June 13-14, 2012, ANR is offering intensive seminar on workplace and interpersonal conflict. This two-day hands-on seminar combines theory and lots of practice. Participants will be involved in role plays, analysis of video clips, and group participation. This seminar is designed to challenge your thinking.
This is part one. There will be a second two-day module available to those participating in this first one.
Participants who successfully complete this training may be invited to implement some of its principles in future University service efforts.
The seminar is directed to ANR Academics and Staff, both individuals who are experienced mediatiors as well as those who are interested in the subject. We recommend that participants have already attended the Crucial Conversations seminar.
Gregorio Billikopf is a Labor Management Farm Advisor with the University of

Three video conferencing sites have been reserved from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Discussion locations include the ANR Building’s Plum Room in Davis, Kearney Agricultural Research & Extension Center’s Walnut Room in Parlier and UCOP’s Room 9405 in Oakland.
The discussion will be led by Kim Rodrigues, executive director of Academic Personnel. She asks participants to review the book and consider the following questions:
1. What administrative qualities do you hope to develop in yourself and/or others?
2. What leadership attributes do you value in a leader and how might we encourage, maintain and/or enhance these attributes in ANR? Below is a list of attributes summarized from ANR’s first leadership book club discussion to guide development of a leadership program in ANR. Are any key attributes missing from this list?
- Knowledgeable about ANR programs at county and campus level
- Confident, with compassion and sincerity to want others to succeed
- Actively motivates, supports, value and promotes teamwork and team members
- Possesses the ability to recognize and utilize the strengths and aptitudes of individual team members to facilitate successful outcomes
- Fosters trust, honesty and integrity
- Willing to make decisions, take action and communicate rationale
- Open and transparent
- Innovative and progressive; willing to embrace the unconventional
- Willing to trust their workforce and take risks
- Approachable and an active listener
- Acknowledges and follows up on input received from their team
- Direct and focused
- Responds to staff concerns in a timely manner
3. How might ANR develop and support these leadership attributes?
4. How might ANR measure and monitor leadership development?
5. What specific insight did this book provide with respect to any or all of these questions?
6. What other leadership activities might ANR consider to support the attributes discussed today?
Any other input you wish to provide is encouraged.
To obtain a copy of the current book, please contact the UC ANR Academic Personnel unit at (530) 754-8509 or email@example.com. Pam Tise will handle registration and Kim Rodrigues will facilitate the discussion group.
