Many academic administrators enter their positions well-prepared to be leaders in research, teaching, and shared governance, but few are prepared to face the personnel challenges that await them. Department chairs, deans, and other academic administrators will inevitably face personnel problems and among the most challenging are those presented by underperforming faculty. Due to the nature of academic employment (tenure, non-tenure, contracts, etc.), it can be very difficult to motivate faculty members to perform to your expectations.
Join us in San Antonio to learn how to manage your underperforming faculty. This conference will address:
Identifying personnel problems
Differentiating among various kinds of performance problems and their causes
Determining the best strategy for solving the problem
