Resources & Referrals
I mentioned a number of supportive resources and referrals that you can use to support your writing (nags, coaches, online writing groups, etc...).
The workshop you experienced was an example of the types of training we offer each month to our members. We have monthly webinars with Kerry Ann as well as guest experts and multi week courses. Check out the schedule by clicking here: Webinar Calendar
Faculty Success Program
Some of you expressed interest in our 12-week Summer Boot-Camp. 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.
In this 60-minute workshop, learn how to create an irresistible offer, how to position your FSP 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.
