If only I had known more about…. Managing People
People. How to motivate them, how to take care of their needs, how to win their trust, how to deal with their shenanigans and celebrate their successes. At the start of my presidency, I had no idea that people would be my biggest challenge. The search committee stressed fund raising, strategic planning, budget management. Nobody mentioned the people part.
