NCCI is now offering professional development programs that will explore a common theme. Keeping your needs in mind, we’re working to create immersive experiences for you to learn timely and meaningful information, cultivate this knowledge into action, and build networks you can call on – for yourself and your institution. As you continue to learn new skills and adapt to new environments, our network of members and thought leaders serves as a powerful resource to support each other in unique and purposeful ways.

The content of each program will still be delivered through offerings you’re familiar with – Power60s, The Exchange, and NCCI Connect – and we’re excited for the potential to introduce new opportunities in the future to build on our foundational offerings. You can register for one, two, or all of the sessions within a themed program depending on your interest. To achieve the program objectives, we encourage attendees to join as many sessions as possible. And if you are unable to join a live session, members will have access to the recorded content.

Our first program is Recalibration: Creating a Better Normal, offered September–November 2021.
Perhaps you are physically returning to your office full-time and navigating your institution’s COVID protocols. Maybe you are implementing a long-term hybrid model, exploring team dynamics and ways to work when some are in the office and others are remote. Regardless of what the ‘new normal’ will look like for you, emerging from the last 18 months of the pandemic will require us all to recalibrate as employees and leaders. Can we create not just a ‘new normal’, but a ‘better normal’ for ourselves, our teams, and our institutions?

By attending the sessions in this program, attendees will feel:

  • More ready to experience a better normal as an employee.
  • More ready to lead and/or work toward creating a better normal within my workplace and institution.
  • Better equipped with tools to do my work.
Upcoming sessions within this program:
  • Power60: Lessons Learned at Home: Empathy & Planning – Tuesday, September 28 at 1 p.m. Eastern
  • The Exchange: Important Conversations: How Managers Can Engage Employees in the Return to Campus – Wednesday, September 29 at 4 p.m. Eastern
