GIFT Office Managers Deep Dive Day
Being an administrative staff member of a community or other foundation is a unique position. Many of us work with very small staff teams while others are at the other end of the spectrum, with a large staff and with multiple people, personalities and different expectations. Our roles include everything from keeping supplies stocked up to planning major events, working with board members, and managing websites and social media outlets…and that doesn’t include everything else in between!! Sometimes it is challenging to keep all the plates spinning.
Office Managers Deep Dive Day (OMD) is designed for administrative and office management staff to allow them to network, learn and share information, and provide support to each other. 2016 OMD will include the following:
- Many years of research conducted by The Gallup Organization suggest that the most effective people are those who understand their strengths and behaviors. A review of the knowledge and skills you have acquired can provide a basic sense of your abilities, but an awareness and understanding of your natural talents will provide true insight into the core reasons behind your consistent successes. Prior to the event, GIFT will subsidize the cost for participants to take the Clifton StrengthsFinder Top 5 Strengths assessment. You will also receive a copy of the bestselling Strengthsfinder 2.0 e-book and results from the assessment will be used to learn how your dominant talents help you excel, and begin your path to better performance and higher engagement.
- Who has time for outside training?? Not many of us! Information about a low cost training software that lets you train at your own pace and when you have time will be presented as well as options for other free software products and other tips and tricks on various topics.
- We will continue with a participant favorite: The what works/idea exchange and problem-solving challenges/issues you may be having.
- Are you really, really good at something? Would you be willing to share your time and talent with others? Are you interested in mentoring a new administrative staff person in your region? Think about what you could share with others (new or established in your position) and we will develop a strategy to be able to continue to share and assist each other.
Those are just some of the topics we will focus on at Office Managers Deep Dive Day. Come share, learn, and network with your peers from around the state!
