Cultivating and developing your staff is the key to retaining them—join us to learn a five-step model.
In Academic Impressions’ 2021 survey of higher ed faculty, staff, and administrators to understand the state of professional development, 80% of respondents reported that more professional development would help them stay in their current role, and 51% of respondents reported experiencing clinical levels of burnout. So what’s the solution? What we found is that providing leadership support for professional development and fostering a culture of learning and growth can lead to greater job satisfaction and greater employee retention. Using the ACORN acronym, our expert instructor, Cié Gee, will walk you through a five-step model for supervision to help you learn to:
- Build Confidence
- Generate One on one connections
- Show Respect, and
- Meet your staff’s Needs
This course is designed with a 5-3-1 approach: 5 main topics, 3 focus areas per topic, and 1 action step for you to complete for each topic.
