Congratulations to Collin Bruner (University of Kentucky) and Casey Roley (University of Kentucky) for being awarded the 2018 Best of the Bluegrass Award for their outstanding session Managing Up: Creating a Mutually Beneficial Supervision Relationship presented during the 2018 KAHO Annual Conference.
From the session description: Managing up? What is that? Supervision is a large component of many Housing professional’s roles, but what about finding ways to supervise our supervisor? Let’s face it, most of us want to manage up, but maybe we do not have the tools or tips to successfully and/or effectively do so. It does not come easy to people, especially when you are a new professional in the field of Higher Education. This presentation is adapted from an article by L. McLeod titled, “10 Ways to Get Your Boss to Trust You Completely” and will focus on defining and explaining various supervisory styles, and how supervisees can in turn effectively learn how to ease the workload of their supervisor based on their supervision style.
Managing Up: Creating a Mutually Beneficial Supervision Relationship will represent Kentucky at the 2019 SEAHO Conference, and its presenters will receive a total of $500 to assist with associated costs.
The Best of the Bluegrass Award is awarded to the highest rated session during the KAHO Annual Conference. The winning session is selected to be presented at the following SEAHO Conference, and the presenters receive a total of $500 to assist with the expenses of attending the SEAHO conference.
