Event Description

Identify 6 Types of Problem Behaviors—and How to Turn Them Around

By their very nature, college and university faculty members can be challenging to supervise. And many management strategies don’t translate effectively from the business world to the academic environment. But there are effective techniques to combat the resistance you face when delivering constructive feedback to faculty performing at a substandard level.

Learn to recognize, address, and correct poor faculty behaviors in this live webinar from educational consultant Aaron W. Hughey. Hughey will teach you to manage difficult faculty while, at the same time, navigating the complicated terrain of academic politics, department goals, and educational missions. Hughey will also discuss the trend toward greater accountability in higher education and how you can use tenure and promotion decisions to effective motivate faculty.

After attending, you’ll be armed with best practices for making smarter hiring decisions, as well as better defining your faculty members’ roles and responsibilities. Plus, you’ll know how to identify and cope with six types of “difficult” faculty—the bully, the complainer, the procrastinator, the guerilla fighter, the expert, and the icicle.

Faculty performance expectations are changing. Be sure your faculty recruitment and supervision strategies are in line with this trend—and equip your team to confront problem behavior in a way that promotes productive and collegial department participation.
