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.
OK, take a few deep breaths.
Schedule two staff meetings, with the exact same agenda. Tell them they have to be at one or the other. That way, people can pick the one that best fits their schedule.
Have a “get to know you,” and “get to know your expectations.” Learn what’s happening, what their concerns are, and that you’ll be coming to take portions of all of their classes and hear about them soon.
Have them bring copies of their documentation to that meeting.
