Managing Yourself (2) & Communicating for Results
Tuesday, September 17 @ 9:15 am–12:00 pm
Supervision Series #2
Continuing with a focus on self-management and personal productivity from the first session, this class helps you determine those critical tasks and projects that make you and your organization more successful and feel like you are on top of all the things on your plate.
Communicating to understand others, be understood, gain agreement, or get something done is critical to a manager’s success and the success of the people they lead. Everything counts: your tone of voice, the words you say, the way you write, how you listen, and nonverbal clues all influence communication outcomes. At the same time, identifying your organization’s key audiences and developing a strategy for communicating more effectively enhances your own professional ability and improves the success of your organization.
Presented by Paul Knudstrup, president of Midwest Consulting Group, Inc. and author of The 8 Essential Skills for Supervisors & Managers.
Designed for entry to middle-level directors and managers in all areas of nonprofit organizations (executives, programs, services, administration, operations, fund development, communications — anyone who supervises other staff or volunteers).
The five sessions build upon each other, so committing to the entire course will provide the greatest benefit. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions at ONEplace@kpl.gov.
