Your Mid-Year Advancement Review: Ensuring Success in the Second Half of the Year

Date: November 8, 2017 · Time: 11:00 am - 12:30 pm central

Half the year is over and it’s time to bring your team together to review what you’ve done right, what you have yet to do, and how to finish successfully.  In the best case scenario, this important time of review results in your team being re-engaged, re-energized and re-focused.  But for many shops, this period of review and planning is under-utilized and, in the worst of scenarios can be viewed as a time-waster.

Join the Gonser Gerber Institute for this webinar which will address the timely and important topic of planning, preparing and executing an effective mid-year review for your advancement and development programs. You will learn how to develop a Mid-Year Review that effectively strengthens the sense of teamwork among staff members, assesses your current progress, builds on the successes from the first half of the year, and culminates with action plans designed to produce the results you need by year’s end.

Topics we will address include:

  • Purpose of the mid-year advancement review
  • Assessing progress and planning for the second half of the year
  • Establishing an agenda and preparing for your staff retreat
  • Mid-year review as part of your annual planning process

The fee is $295 per institution, which allows your entire team the opportunity to participate in this professional development at the same time. If you are a current client of Gonser Gerber Advancement Consulting, that fee is just $145. You will also receive a copy of the presentation and a recording of the webinar with your registration.
