Because so many of us are slogging through long hours and huge case loads, particularly in this economic climate, I thought this piece from Rosabeth Moss Kanter over at the Voices blog (Harvard Business Publishing) would be particularly relevant. In her post, she discusses the 3 characteristics that make someone an energizer.

We've talked about rehiring quality SANEs who've left the program as one effective recruitment tool in a previous post, but there's a great Conversation Starter this week that touches on the same topic. Keep in mind, it was written for the business world, but the principles are still applicable...

Its only 9:15 am and I have already fielded two questions this morning on SANE/SART funding, so I am going to take that as a sign from the blogging gods and get a post up on finding funders.

NIJ has video available of Dr. Rebecca Campbell speaking at one of their symposiums on her research regarding SANE programs and their impact on the criminal justice system.

Did you know that the Foundation Center now has a librarian available to chat with you in real time as you tackle grant writing and fundraising issues? It's a great resource for those of us with immediate gratification issues (e.g. when emailing that question just doesn't get a quick enough response).
 
Keep in mind that there probably won't be anyone available for live chat at 11:30 the night before your grant is due, so plan accordingly:)

The SAFE TA project is hosting a free webinar on victim privacy October 13th from 2-3:30 ET. Susan Chasson, an IAFN past president and practicing SANE, and Jessica Mindlin, an attorney from the Victim Rights Law Center and NSVRC advisory board member, will be the featured presenters.
 
You can find all the info at the Forensic Health site, where I posted session and registration details this morning.

If you've read this site for any period of time, you know I'm a big fan of Harvard Business Publishing's multiple blogs. There's a lot of wisdom over there, much of it arriving in the snack-sized servings my short attention span can manage. Two terrific (and unrelated) posts from the past week caught my attention today:

Just a reminder that we still have a handful of spots available for the leadership and management workshop we will be doing at IAFN in Atlanta this year. The workshop will be all day on Saturday, Oct. 24th. If you have any interest in attending, please register soon. Among the topics we will be covering:

We frequently make recommendations about matters of communication in the sustainability project: annual employee evaluations, staff meetings, and unfortunately sometimes, even staff terminations. It's definitely a skill to effectively communicate as a program manager; it's an even greater skill to effectively deliver bad news within that role.
