Session Number: 1016
Date: Wed, Aug 8th, 2018
Time: 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Description:

Managers expend considerable energy and resources on hiring talented prospect development staff, but the real challenge for managers begins when the hiring is done. The thoughtful manager must be able to balance the evolving big-picture needs of his/her organization with the specialized needs of the staff sh/e manages. What team structure best suits both the individual personalities on your team and the needs of your organization? How can managers establish a team environment that feels both stable and adaptable? How do you give superstar employees opportunities for professional growth in what is many times a flat organizational structure? This workshop is ideal for managers of mid-size to large prospect development teams who want to engage in creative and dynamic conversation with colleagues who face many of the same challenges. The focus of the session is less on presentation and more on facilitated, interactive audience discussion.
