Day 1 - Thursday, August 3rd at Brandeis University & On-line

  • Session 1: Decision Making Skills for Live-in Professionals 
    • Decision making is a critical skill necessary to be successful.  As a professional you will make hundreds of decisions every week (maybe even every day!).  How we process information and make decisions can impact your residents,  your RA staff, professional colleagues and affect your performance as a leader.  In this interactive session, we review the decision making process, how to share your decisions with others and review the intersection between decision making and problem solving.  You will use several tools that help you determine the kind of decision maker you are and give you tips to making decisions in crisis environments.  
  • Session 2: Building Self-Confidence as a Leader and Supervisor
    • Starting out as a professional, it can be a challenge to have the confidence in yourself as a leader and supervisor. How do you start to feel more comfortable in your role, and do the worries of self-confidence go away? Learn more about how to develop your confidence and from examples of how leaders persist through challenges as a leader.

Day 2 - Tuesday, August 8th at NHTI & On-line

  • Session 3: Receiving Feedback and Attitude in the Workplace:
    • Everyone agrees that being able to deliver feedback with clarity, consistency and respect is a critical leadership skill. What we don’t often focus on is the equally important skill of receiving feedback without defensiveness and growing from it. When we view feedback as an opportunity to learn from each other, it strengthens our relationships, improves our leadership, and leads to greater professional satisfaction.
      It is important to receive feedback with the right attitude but additionally it is equally important to one’s team and their career to maintain a positive attitude always.  
      In this interactive workshop, we will explore the experiences that have shaped our views on feedback and attitude, identify its value, and learn (and practice!) strategies and structures to give and receive feedback effectively and have a positive attitude in the higher education workplace. 
  • Session 4: Establishing Boundaries: Work/Life Balance
    • Living where you work can be difficult. Managing a schedule that is anything from 9-5 is also challenging. This session will outline some tactics and best practices for attempting to achieve the best work life balance for any live-in, live-on or live-off Student Affairs professional.

Day 3 - Thursday, August 10th at Sacred Heart University & On-line

  • Session 5: Navigating Campus Politics
    • Campus politics can be a difficult scene to navigate as a professional. It can be even more difficult as someone who lives on/in. Learn from case study examples in areas specific to: working with a supervisor on complex issues, navigating senior leadership, institutional fit, relationships/authenticity, and applying the good and bad in the everyday work you do.
  • Session 6: Leveraging and Managing Your Presence on Social Media
    • Social Media is how our students are communicating with each other and whether you like it or not it is important to have an understanding and maybe even a presence in the 21st century water cooler. There is a lot to know about Social Media and you are probably only scratching the surface. Learn ways to properly conduct yourself as a higher education professional and how to maximize its potential for your current job and your future.
