Webinar: Campus Directors and Female Staff—Understanding Each Other
Since most campus directors are from Mars and women are from Venus, it’s difficult to understand each other from light years away. I facilitate this two-way discussion about communication differences and serve up ways to help close the gap between these two planets, so to speak.
- “Don’t expect [your campus director] to paint your fingernails and eat Oreos with you on the weekend as they counsel you through life.”
- “I receive correction much better if my leader is not arrogant, serves me, and also is setting the pace with being successful in ministry.”
- “I’ve trained up [Kevin] with my tears… #whenyourhusbandisyourboss”
- “Expectation early in the accepting of staff can be key. I have let my current supervisor [know] not to sugarcoat, because I know [saying] that will open the communication and not make him try to tiptoe around me.”
- What is the balance between pushing/encouraging female staff and comforting/coming alongside them with understanding?
- How should a female staffer work with a male supervisor when she seems insecure about his leadership?
- What are some practical steps or advice for a team which both the campus director and staff girl are single?
- How can you support a new male director who you have more experience than, without overstepping his authority?
