How to Manage a Congressional Office Remotely During a Crisis
Organizer: Congressional Management Foundation
Congress just made a massive change to how it functions: moving to remote operations. This change was rapid and unexpected. It is likely that many congressional managers have questions about how to manage the team during this crisis; how to re-orient constituent engagements; and how to conduct contingency planning if something else happens (like the Member/Senator or key staff become ill).
To help congressional offices at this time, the Congressional Management Foundation (CMF) will be hosting a webinar "How to Manage a Congressional Office Remotely during a Crisis."
The Congressional Management Foundation has developed this program based on our previous research after 9/11 and the anthrax attack, and combined it with recent research from leading authorities in the U.S on managing in a telework environment. We have combined helpful advice from Harvard Business Review, Forbes, the Society for Human Resource Management and CMF's own best practices to bring you an informative presentation. By the end of the program, you should expect to gain information on the following:
- 5 changes you should immediately consider for office operations.
- 4 rules for managing staff in a teleworking environment.
- How to make a "virtual" meeting seem "real."
- 6 mistakes managers often make in a crisis.
- Helpful and REALLY silly things you can do remotely to help everyone maintain their sense of humor...and their sanity!
