Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Health(iness)

Parks are such good medicine that doctors are now prescribing visits to them as treatment for a variety of ailments. But not all parks are the same, so how do we know how good the medicine is for a particular park? This session will show how the “medicinal value” of one park can be measured and compared to another. While the process is rooted in scientific evidence, this presentation will focus on its practical use in planning, designing, and promoting parks as public health amenities, including how the measure of each park’s potential to generate healthy physical activity can be combined with demographic data to evaluate the overall performance of a park system for providing equitable access to healthy activity for all residents.

NRPA Live 2018 Speed Sessions Volume 1

Three speed sessions streamed from the 2018 NRPA Annual Conference:
- Parks and Recreation: The New Status Symbol - There's no doubt that our society's definition of status has shifted from what you own to what you do. More than ever before consumers are driven to spend money on exclusive and elevated activities. Parks & recreation couldn't be better poised to take advantage of this experienced-based economy, but often falls short in showcasing our parks, programs, and facilities as the status-worthy opportunities that they are. Learn about the trends fueling this consumer behavior and get inspired with ideas you can adapt in your community.
- WE GOT ENGAGED! Tips for Communicating Effectively with Your Part-Time Workforce - This speed session will focus on tackling the challenges of effectively communicating with large numbers of part-time employees in an efficient manner that encourages collaboration, mentorship, and employee development. Attendees will learn about the benefits of creating a part-time advisory council, embracing the unique talents found in a diverse department, and exposing the part-time workforce to the varied and wide-ranging careers that can be found under the Parks and Recreation umbrella. Discussion topics will include lessons learned from an array of communication and efficiency barriers and tips to prepare for the future of increased service demands while balancing staff challenges.
- If You Don't Feed the Supervisors, They Eat the Staff - As an administrator you must create a culture of nurturing and identifying talents in order to FEED the supervisors and allow them to grow into successful and effective leaders. They must be encouraged to take risks and act as coaches and mentors to their staff. They must ask, guide, communicate, encourage, and delegate while being the best sideline cheerleaders they can be. Come learn the recipe needed to ensure the success of your team. Hear the story of how a change in leadership style changed the culture of an entire Division. Join me in my quest to save the staff FROM BEING EATEN and leave with ideas that can be implemented easily in your own organization.

NRPA Live 2018 Speed Sessions Volume 2

Three speed sessions recorded from the 2018 NRPA Annual Conference:

- Leadership Coaching - The next frontier in leading - The Parks and Recreation field knows first hand the power of coaching for their athletic programs but do you do know the value of coaching to aid in the development and growth of your employees? Coaching is not just for athletics anymore in fact it is the most contemporary form evaluating their performance. Coaching is the practice that specializes in changing awareness, action, and the world around us in so many ways. When done correctly, coaching results in a personal paradigm shift. It helps develop the whole person by helping them to balance the many different aspects of our lives and to improve a person's ability to function. Coaching is unlocking people's potential to maximize their own performance.

- The Public's Health Agency: Parks and Recreation's Critical Role in Communities - In almost all communities, counties or regions, the local park and recreation agency is the only organization who can plan for, and implement impactful 'interventions' (programs and services) for the residents. This unique placement in our communities is sometimes not well understood by the profession, or others. This session gives attendees the cheat sheet to understanding how public health professionals view the 'public's health, how they research and study health, and how they plan to improve the public's health. Connecting terminology and approaches used in public health with parks and recreation provides a start, while emphasizing how parks and recreation agencies serve their communities provides context that makes a difference.

- Unlock your Fundraising Future: 10 Rules for Attracting - and Sustaining - Donors to your Mission - In a time of ever-shrinking budgets, many public agencies are considering how they can tap into America's culture of philanthropy to diversify revenue and achieve their mission. From partnering with external "friends" groups, to hiring professional fundraising staff, to establishing a 501c3 supporting organization, there are many models for turning your users into life-long donors, advocates, and ambassadors for your mission. But which is right for you? And what messages inspire people to give beyond their tax dollars? This session will present 10 rules for establishing - and growing - a vibrant donor community to take your agency to the next level.
