Tip of the Week:  Do a Weekly Check on Your Objectives

  • Take the objectives page from your annual planning document/review and tape it inside on of your drawers.
  • Each Friday before you leave, open the drawer, look at your objectives, and write down your progress toward each of those objectives for the past week.
  • This is a way to keep your focus on what is important, capture your accomplishments, and provide a nice wrap -up to the week!

Tip of the Week:

  • If you are hosting a conference…the AV and/or logistics person is your best friend!  Be sure to include them in your pre-meetings, exchange contact information, share goals of conference and expectations of working relationship, etc.  Be sure to follow up with them (and their manager) with an email or note thanking them for their work and highlighting examples of the impact their work had on your, the conference, and the conference participants.
