I have 2 instructors who have expressed interest in teaching the same format but wasn’t able to provide more spots. I just had 1 opening and asked if either wanted the spot. Now I am getting non-committal responses. Things like “Is ‘so & so’ going to be interested in alternating or do you need me every class?” or responding with interest but only if they can adjust the schedule.
Should I just forgo the whole mess and tell them as they could not provide a definite answer then I am not going to offer the class? Do I say I will let them share the class but they need to make sure it is always covered?
I am new to my role so am still laying the foundation and this is one those really difficult moments that is not black and white for me.
Sue D’Alonzo, in a perfect world that might work. However, i was recently hired into this position and these instructirs have been working for the gym for awhile. I believe all coordinatirs and directors do try to hire positive individuals and many instructors say they want more classes. It is sometimes like a kid in a candy shop, their eyes are bigger than their stomachs.
