Nonprofit Fundamentals: Everyday Management Do's and Don'ts

Tuesday, December 07, 11:00 AM - Tuesday, December 07, 2021, 12:00 PM

Fee: $25 for MCN members / $45 for nonmembers
We all know the adage that employees don’t leave companies, they leave managers. If your objective as a leader is to develop and keep the best employees, it’s vital that you truly evaluate what you’re doing to ensure your best employees stay. Since we can’t always see in ourselves what our employees see, we’ll explore practical do’s and don’ts of employee management so you can live and breathe a managerial style that retains top talent. You’ll leave this session with practical tips, a self-assessment and an action plan to instill positive do’s and avoid the don’ts.
