Your summer program fulfills a number of purposes but not everyone in the school understands and appreciates either its sophistication or its importance.

In this Webinar, we'll review the major reasons for having a summer program, and then identify key relationships that the Summer Program Director must have to ensure optimal excellence. While you are the CEO of your program, you don’t have the power that a CEO usually has. How do you negotiate for what you need and ensure that your colleagues support you to success? This Webinar helps answer that question.

We'll cover these topics:

  • Reasons for a summer program
  • Relationships where you have to manage upwards
  • Relationships where you have to manage sideways
  • Relationships where you have to manage down
  • Having the title but not the power or having the power and knowing what to do with it
  • How this translates into professional satisfaction and programmatic success

Run Time: 60 minutes; 45 minutes of presentation and 15 minutes for Q&A.
