Webinar: Campus Directors and Female Staff—Understanding Each Other


February 26, 2017
Categories:

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.

Best Quotes

  • “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.”

Questions Answered

  • 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?
