Managing Day-to-Day Priorities:  Helping keep everyone (including yourself) on task


The reality of the current economy is that everyone is being asked to do more-and-more with less-and-less.  Your responsibilities keep increasing while the resources to meet them – staff and funding – stay the same, if you are lucky.  Under these conditions, your ability to keep your staff focused on what is important could be the difference between being successful in meeting your mission and struggling.  Throw in the ever increasing reporting and regulations that grant funders are now requiring and the importance increases that much more.


The 2-hour Managing Day-to-Day Priorities workshop will help you identify your staff’s most critical tasks, make sure that those tasks are being accomplished, and give you some tools for taking corrective measures if they are not being met.
