This week is the IAFN Annual Assembly, so I will be in Atlanta through next weekend. Posting will be light, but please check in over at the Forensic Health site for updates from the conference.
 
In the meantime, here's a story from Friday's Kansas Free Press you might find interesting (thanks, Kim!).

Fieldstone Alliance has a great piece on the keys to collaboration you might find useful. Aside from outlining the 4 areas needed for collaboration, it also has a section on elements of successful collaboration that might be of particular interest. Best of all, as with so many of their resources, it's written concisely, with lots of bullet points for easy digestion. My only beef with their stuff is that they don't offer printable views.

First off, apologies for the paucity of posts as of late. I am smack in the middle of a 12 city/8 week tour of the US (because March and April are incredibly busy training months), and I simply haven't been able to keep up.

For those of you who will be attending the IAFN Annual Scientific Assembly, please note that we will be doing a full-day workshop on Saturday, October 24th for program managers (for some reason, they titled it NSVRC Leadership, which doesn't provide much info). The goal of the workshop is to provide program managers with tools and resources to more efficiently and effectively run sustainable clinical programs.

Logic models are one of those things that are great to have available when writing grants or engaging potential donors, but they can be a challenge to create. I think the process of putting together a logic model can be daunting. The details can feel overwhelming and complicated at first glance. In all actuality, logic models can actually simplify things, creating an illustration for the good results we see and why those good results occur.

We frequently make recommendations about matters of communication in the sustainability project: annual employee evaluations, staff meetings, and unfortunately sometimes, even staff terminations.

Here's a practical concept for all of you managers: managing up. It's the idea of positioning people so as to accentuate the positive. You can manage up your boss, your staff and even your organization. When you think about how managing up creates an environment where people feel valued and respected, the sustainability implications become pretty clear: easier to recruit, easier to retain.
