As organizations are continually asked to do more with less, it’s critical that you be able to retain your staff and keep them engaged and motivated. During this hour long Q&A session, Professor Diane Burton of Cornell University will explore your questions about what makes your organization an attractive place to work and how to use job design and policies to keep staff motivated. Prior to the live session, your team will be provided with a recorded presentation by Professor Burton on management challenges specific to arts organizations and creating “good jobs” that are fulfilling for staff and meet the needs of your organization.

Leaders use negotiation as a business tool every day to advance their organizations -- in labor agreements, contracting with partners and suppliers, and in some cases with boards of trustees. Professor Margaret Neale of Stanford University will provide your team with tools to help you negotiate more effectively, from assessing the cost and benefit of a particular negotiation to determining which negotiation strategy will be most appropriate and effective. Professor Neale will lecture for 45 minutes, providing you and your team with the opportunity to submit questions at the end of the session. Register Now »
