Reconnecting to Start the Semester

in Advisors
January 9th, 2014

Many of our groups utilize the down time and opportunity for reflection that the break provides. However, sometimes after a long break and a change in a student’s schedule, it can be difficult to establish a new routine. Some groups may even lose their direction. This is where a simple nudge from a well-meaning advisor like you could make the difference between missions and dreams unfulfilled and the realization of a group’s mission throughout the entire semester.

It could be as simple as an email or a lunch meeting or something more complex like assisting with a goal setting session or retreat. The important part is that the group knows you care about them and the success of the organization.

What will you do to make sure the groups you advise start the semester with some momentum?
