Nuru Leadership Looks Ahead to Improving Scheduling and Staff Trainings in 2013

With Feedback training in full swing and our Field Managers busy practicing and delivering the training, the Leadership District Managers decided that this would be the perfect time for us to turn our attention to the coming year. While it may seem like the new year is still far away, we have a few big changes coming up that need to be prepared for. One of these major changes is scheduling. In Leadership we face the unique challenge of scheduling with all Nuru programs and because of this we are always seeking new ways to make this process, and our trainings, more efficient, effective, and convenient for the staff. Leadership District Managers have been brainstorming new methods of scheduling and as a result we are beginning to shift when our trainings happen, how often they happen, and also how long each training series will last. It is our hope that as our training schedule shifts, we will work more effectively with each program and Nuru staff will be able to optimize their time at our trainings.

Another important change that will happen next year is the professional development of Leadership Field Managers. Originally hired to solely practice and deliver trainings, the team has decided that it is important to bring Field Managers into other activities that happen in our program—most importantly, curriculum writing. In the new year, the Leadership District Managers will hold a series of trainings for our Field Managers to help equip them with the knowledge and skills necessary to write and edit Leadership curriculum. As our program grows, it will be necessary for the Field Managers to take on added responsibilities, and teaching them how to write curriculum is merely the first step in the process of their professional development and growth at Nuru.

We have big plans ahead of us for 2013 and look forward to sharing all of our exciting developments as they happen here in Kuria, West.  In the meantime, enjoy the holidays!
