Becoming a More Effective Admissions Manager

Workshop ID: 2549
Fee: $275

This full-day workshop is designed for emerging leaders in admissions offices – from middle managers to new directors – to learn from experienced members of the profession and to share best practices with your fellow emerging leaders. Topics will include recruitment, processing, assessment, enrollment management, and staffing. At the end of the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to join a listserv made up of your session colleagues for all of those times when you are back in your offices dealing with every-day challenges, and wondering, “what do other admissions offices do about ____?”

Coaching Your Team: Managing By Personality to Achieve Success

Workshop ID: 1932
Fee: $190

Using a “coaching-the-coach” perspective, this workshop uses sports theories and practices to show how a team at one large university in the California State University system developed a mission statement and a set of core values and then used these tools to advance two-year strategic goals. Attendees will learn how to coach and motivate different personality types to deliver their best work and contribute to a department's long -term strategic success.
