Social Service Management and
Administration for Tribal Organizations




Social service management is complex and challenging for any government, but is particularly so for Indian tribes. This is due to the multifaceted nature of the work and the fact that an Indian program must interface with a variety of service partners, including federal, state, county and tribal agencies.

This class, taught by expert instructor Jon Grant*, centers on social service administration and management theories and practice. In this informative three-day program, we’ll cover business and management principles involved in strategic planning, resource allocation, human resources modeling, leadership techniques, production methods, coordination of people and resources, and resource developments. We’ll also explore the latest change management techniques, program evaluations techniques, grant writing skills and much more.

Ensure that you have the necessary knowledge and skills that set apart the best tribal social service managers from the rest—register today.
