Description
One of the most challenging responsibilities of being a college department chair or dean is to effectively manage the diverse and independent intellectuals that form the typical college faculty. Many administrators not only complain about the amount of time they devote to grappling with problems between faculty and staff members—but many also feel inadequately trained for resolving the problems they with which they are confronted. Managing People helps administrators handle the challenges they face when dealing with everyday personnel management problems. A collection of 13 essays, this book is written by experienced chairs, deans, and vice presidents who offer sensible advice based on personal experience and scholarly research. Each essay tackles a different aspect of people management, explaining the dimensions and subtleties of the issue as well as offering targeted suggestions and resources. Topics include An analysis of how self-understanding is essential to any leader Strategies for working with faculty and staff in a sincere and authentic manner Approaches to positive leadership Tips on achieving consensus among faculty Advice on conducting departmental or college meetings that create cohesion The different types of detractors or difficult individuals, and how best to deal with them An explanation of how to eliminate negative defenses Evaluations as useful for enhancing faculty performance and satisfaction Ways in which to build and maintain faculty morale This book offers readers a practical guide on how to better manage faculty and staff in order to realize shared visions and positively impact their institutions. - from Amzon
