Who Moved My Leader? Navigating the Transitions of Presidents, Vice Presidents and Deans
With the average tenure for leadership positions in higher education institutions shrinking, it’s nearly impossible to work in the field without a major transition or two happening at the President, Provost or Dean level. Learn from people who have gone through these transitions about how to navigate the waves of change while keeping yourself and your donors happy.

Navigating Change: Why Some Organizations Successfully Navigate Change and Others Fracture
We all hear that “change is inevitable” but do we have the tools to guide our organizations through times of difficult change? How do we maintain our enthusiasm and focus during times of key leadership changes, retirement of a beloved Board Chair or Vice President, loss of your President halfway through your Capital Campaign, budget issues, and staffing turnovers? This interactive session provides a structured approach for change management. Focusing on the work of Patrick Lencioni in his books “The Advantage” and “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team” the participants will tackle tough questions and concerns that we face regardless of our role. Everyone plays a role in facilitating positive change and influencing organizational health.  Each will develop strategies that are needed to navigate and avoid the “freeze zones”. Participants will leave with a road-map to implement change strategies thoroughly and smoothly, which will lead to an organization’s health and success.
