The role of chief of staff looks very different at each institution and requires a unique skill set for continued success. During this workshop, we will look at how you can maintain a balance in your professional life while managing a varied and often unpredictable role. We have assembled four current and former chiefs of staff to help you:

  • Define the right role for yourself
  • Navigate the massive and ambiguous workload with the appropriate tools
  • Mitigate stress, maintain energy, and keep a positive attitude
  • Establish and maintain critical internal and external relationships
  • Handle presidential transitions, conflicts, and crises with confidence

Who Should Attend

This program is designed for new or emerging chiefs of staff who have been in the role for 3 years or less, as well as professionals aspiring to the chief of staff position. Those with a higher level of experience in the position will benefit from our sister training: Institute for Experienced Chiefs of Staff: Improving Your Processes, Communications, and Relationships.
