“That’s not the way we did it last year.” “The former director let us do this…” Whether you are a new director who is running the show for the first time or a veteran who just had a rough summer, how do you hit the ground running this summer towards positive change?
A Best Practice for Leadership Training:
Help your staff members to learn to arrive to training sessions on time by making the times memorable. Have your sessions begin at times like: 9:03, 10:47 or 2:18. If they still have trouble, take a page from Michael Brandwein and wait for the stragglers to arrive, calming and gently explain that you will all leave the room together and, in 2 minutes, all come in together to begin the session. Chances are, they will never be late again.
