Best Practices

•    Show enthusiasm in the organization and its activities

•    Encourage communication

•    Be receptive to feedback and clear about expectations

•    Be prepared to fulfill the expectations of your advisees (recognizing the time commitment this may take)

•    Listen during meetings, asking questions to increase dialogue and encourage new perspectives

•    Encourage co-sponsorship to avoid repeat events and stretched budgets

•    Encourage executive board members to meet with new officers prior to a transition and prepare a binder of records and information for future leaders

•    Remember that it is far better to ask questions of others than to misinform your advisees

•    Use the SAIL Office as a resource for event planning/advising, and encourage your advisees to do the same

•    Remember that a balanced advising relationship does not mean becoming “one of the group” or being unapproachable
