It was such a tremendous pleasure to work with you! To follow up on our workshop, I have some information, additional resources, and a few gifts to use along your academic journey.
Cultivating your network of mentors, sponsors, and collaborators

GIFT #1: The Sunday Meeting
If you would like to start having a Sunday Meeting to plan your week, you can follow along here (this is a hand-on workshop):
GIFT #2: The Art of Saying "NO"
Many faculty (pre and post-tenure) find it incredibly difficult to sort out when, why and how to say "NO." In this monthly training call, you will learn: 1) the biggest mistakes faculty make in responding to requests, 2 ) how to identify and disrupt problematic patterns, and 3) our favorite strategies that you can implement immediately so you can add "no" to your vocabulary this semester.
GIFT #3: Writing AccountabilityA lengthier description of the different types of writing accountability structures I described in the workshop.
The workshop you experienced was an example of the types of workshops we offer each month to our individual and institutional members. Our monthly training and guest expert workshops are a benefit of NCFDD membership. If you're not currently a member, consider becoming an NCFDD Individual Member or asking your college/university to become an Institutional Member. Feel free to review our Upcoming Tele-Workshops Calendar.
Faculty Success Program
Some of you expressed interest in our 15-week Boot-Camp that runs every Fall, Spring, and Summer Semester. You can read more about the program by clicking here. It's not for everyone, but if you need to make some radical changes in your productivity and/or 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.
I greatly enjoyed working with you!
