At the Chronicle of Higher Education, George McClellan, vice chancellor for student affairs at Indiana University-Purdue University in Fort Wayne, discusses skills that an administrator should learn early in his or her career. I think we could all benefit from learning these skills, though we may spend our entire careers developing them. This is a very worthwhile article.
Here are the skills:
Giving depositions and court testimony.
Handling internal politics
Moving up the ranks.
Aiding Those Suffering Loss and Grieving. (and dealing with your own grieving)
