Free Webinar on Managing with Labor’s Values for leaders and staff directors of unions and social justice organizations. Based on the book of the same name.
This webinar will address how to:
- Determine what each of your staff need from a manager
- Set clear expectations for staff
- Help staff meet those expectations
- Keep staff accountable in a positive way
Elected officers, Board members and staff with management responsibilities usually have little or no preparation, training or guidance on how to manage effectively with the values for which they stand.
This free webinar is offered to introduce some basic methods for managing staff in unions and social justice organizations.
