A busy day - like most days

What does a faculty/administrator do.... today's menu of meetings
  • 10:15-10:45 ...with visiting colleague and former AU development program founder, Steve Arnold (who coined the champaigne glass metaphor)
  • 10:45-11:00 ... with staff member about book dust jacket text and design (a new book is coming out soon... about time after seventeen years of research and writing
  • 12:45-1:20 ...lunch with Steve Arnold and ID colleagues
  • 1:30-2:30 ...meeting with two staff members to work through some communication issues; a workplace that is rewarding to work in depends on clear communication, including the expresson of concerns - this is a priority in the Center for Teaching Excellence)
  • 2:35-3:30 ...monthly 'one on one' meeting with a staff member (these are meetings with the staff member sets the agenda to some degree). He or she discusses what worked and didn't work during the past month and issues that need to be resolved
  • 3:30-4:15 ... weekly budget review with a staff member
  • 4:15-4:30 ...informal meetings individually with the two staff members to get their perspectives on the earlier meeting; both said it went well
  • 4:30-5:44 ... attended forum on international development issues and trends over the last 30 years.

  • 6:45-7:00 ...catching up on urgent emails
  • 7:00-7:10 ...writing in my blog
  • 7:10--- replicating data bases, packing up for the weekend, driving to the country....
