A Few Gifts For You!
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 hands-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: Cultivating a Network of Mentors, Sponsors & Collaborators
For those of you who were unable to attend, I've included an audio and slides of one of our workshops describing our mentoring model.
GIFT #4: Writing AccountabilityA lengthier description of the different types of writing accountability structures I described in the workshop:
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...). All of them can be found by clicking on the "Resources and Referrals" button in the left hand navigation bar.
Here's some that you specifically requested:
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. Feel free to register and review our Upcoming Tele-Workshops Calendar.
Faculty Success Program
Some of you expressed interest in our 15-week Boot-Camp that runs every 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 and am looking forward to hearing about all of your success.
