Fall Institute

Fall Institute is a gathering for Executive Assistants and staff within the Office of the President at MICU member institutions.  Wednesday, October 30, 2019 10:00am-3:00pm

Fall Institute will take place in Lansing and is an opportunity to gather together to enjoy: 

  • Professional Development

  • Networking Lunch

  • Overview of MICU initiatives and upcoming events

Our guest speaker, Michele Byerly, is passionate about providing service with a smile and sharing best practices with other executive assistants. She has worked in her current role as Executive Assistant to the President at Biola University since 2009. She will be sharing information on:

  • Effective Communication to Convey Your Message: From written correspondence to spoken conversations to non-verbal signals, clarity and intentionality are critical for getting your message across in a way that reflects well on your, your supervisor, and your institution.

  • How My Biggest Blunders Made Me Better: Teachability makes the difference between someone doomed to repeat the same mistakes and someone who benefits from them. In this tell-all session, you’ll hear how Michele’s errors led to new systems, processes and ways of thinking and how yours can too.

Additionally, we will have a session on wellness/mindfulness, and more! Please contact Shannon Price or Colby Cesaro if you have questions.
