Instructors not answering my e mails requesting updates on their certifications, instructors not teaching on the phrase, members who are super bossy. I’ve only been there a week and its my first coordinating job. I would like to tighten things up and add/remove some classes, and i know that it will create pushback from instructors and members. I don’t want to come off as a nag from the get -go. Please, any advice will be MOST helpful.
HHH No I was just venting a bit. There was no coordinator for over 5 years, the director was doing everything and she was totally overwhelmed with a remodel of the facility and not enough employees. Not her fault. Last coordinator quit because she had a run in with a member.
I have been just going to classes, getting to know members and teachers. I have not made any suggestions or changes. I am just getting a feel for how the culture is.
I am just sad that only one or two instructors are certified, but I don’t have to address it immediately. I will have a new boss next week, so then I will have some direction and see what she would like the priorities to be.
Please don’t take me wrong guys, I am blessed to get the job. The instructors are nice and the members are nice. They just got into the habit of being able to run off instructors that they couldn’t control from what I have heard, and they like things to stay as they are( don’t we all, LOL)
So I hope this clarifies that I want to be the best coordinator I can be, and I want to build relationships ( good ones) with the members and co-workers on the team.
