A Few Gifts for You!
I mentioned several items during our workshop that we didn't have the opportunity to dive into more fully. Here are some additional materials, trainings, and information for you to download and enjoy at your convenience.
Gift #1: The Art of saying "NO"
Gift #2: The Sunday Meeting
Resources and readings:
I mentioned a number of supportive resources and referrals that you can use to support your writing (nags, coaches, online writing groups, etc...). All of them can be found by clicking on Resources and Readings.
The workshop you experienced was an example of the types of Tele-Workshops we offer each month as part of our annual membership for our Institutional and Individual Members. If you want to do a monthly deep dive on our Thriving in the Academy series then consider becoming an individual NCFDD Member or asking your college/university to become an Institutional Member.
Faculty success program:
Some of you expressed interest in our 15-week Faculty Boot-Camp that runs every Fall, Spring, and Summer term. You can read more about the program by clicking here. It's not for everyone, but if you want to make some radical changes to increase your productivity and work-life balance AND you know that you'll be most effective working within an intense community of support and accountability, then consider enrolling in our next session.
In this 60-minute workshop, learn how to create an irresistible offer, how to position your Faculty Success Program participation as a win-win situation for your college, and how to secure a commitment from your university that will provide you with the tools you need to thrive in your department!
I greatly enjoyed working with you and am looking forward to hearing about all of your success.
