Conquering the Professional Norm: Budgeting, Communication, and Meetings

May 02, 2018

By Megan C. Lawther McCarthy

Whether you’ve had years of managerial experience or you are new to being a manager, three work responsibilities have become the professional norm: budgeting, communication, and meetings.

Navigating these daily tasks can be demanding as you tackle unforeseen situations while remaining composed in providing support to your staff and responding to campus stakeholders. All managers can benefit from tips and techniques that make the managerial role more successful and less stressful.

For the NAFSA 2018 Annual Conference & Expo next month, we have designed a special series of Career Center Speaker Series sessions custom-tailored for managers and those aspiring to become managers. Attend these three sessions to discover new ways to keep your balance and manage competing priorities.

Budgeting
Learn how to make data-informed decisions to adjust your budget mid-year at the Fiscal Responsibility: Developing and Managing Budgets session.

Communication
Understanding how your communication style influences how other perceive you will be one topic discussed at the Workplace Influence: Communicating Up, Across, and Down session.

Meetings
Explore important considerations for planning inclusive meetings and how to ensure accountability of meeting attendees at the A Meeting About Meetings: Effective Strategies to Engage Your Team session.

Be sure to add these sessions to your conference schedule, and check out the full list of career-related sessions and events to round out your conference planner. We look forward to seeing you in the Career Center (Philadelphia Convention Center rooms 115 A and B) next month in Philly!
