Some are summarizing their discussions and distributing them to managers throughout their organizations. Use the CSMFO Coaching Program as an effective way to enhance professional development in your agency. Here are some discussion starters for this session:
a. What types of independent contractors and temporary employees do we have?
b. Are there improvements that we need to make in how we qualify and pay them?
c. How can we mitigate risks to our agency?
