Our higher ed eco system has many challenges, yet it is also an ocean of opportunity!

Ocean of Opportunity

New Deans

New deans, and now ALL deans in part because of COVID, have unique opportunities to significantly expand the capabilities of their college for thriving in the future.

People expect change, yet since March, the leaders I’ve coached have muddled their strategy.

  • They’re no longer clear on their own purpose or the college’s purpose.
  • Old metrics measure where they’ve been, yet are of little use in measuring where they ‘re headed.
  • Their people are fearful and are showing up more resistive.

Very soon, I’ll be rolling out a series of videos designed to support higher ed leaders and their teams in addressing issues that can no longer be ignored. This series has room to expand. Please send me your ideas for content in the message box below. 

(I promise not to spam you; the First Name and Captcha fields are there to reduce spam coming to this website.) 

Please share your thoughts and ideas.

Executive Man Thinking

Pause & Reflect

Prioritize

FIRST  Take care of yourself. Your people need you at your best to lead them through this unique period.

  • SLEEP    You want to increase mental capability, complexity, and creativity for making strategic decisions. Our brains need us to sleep so it can organize. Mounting research results bears this out.
  • PAUSE    Mindfully breathe deeply throughout the workday; for example, before entering a meeting, making the next call, or leaving your office. You’ll increase oxygen intake and support clearer thinking.
  • REFLECT    You are one expert at the top with many more experts below. Use your executive presence to create an approachable environment where others feel safe to confidently share their perspectives and points of view. Listen and value their input.
  • Then ACT    Mindfully trust your instincts. Make your own decisions. Own them and hold yourself accountable.

Generate Ideas & Be Bold

Re-Energize Creativity

‘Old rules’ are not working so well these days.  They no longer produce anticipated outcomes on a regular basis and we’re learning many just don’t work at all!

Our world is changing into one where creative ideas are the new currency of success.

Fortunately for us, we are born with innate creativity, and it’s perfect for tapping into a world filled with vibrant activity and a plethora of opportunities (which can seem difficult to find).

Our innate creativity is a blind spot most leaders overlook, especially during times of crisis. Logical decision making helps us with what we ‘know to be true’ for the moment.  Re-energizing your innate creativity shifts your viewing lens for noticing opportunities that will carry you future-forward.

Invest In Your People

Leverage Resources

Immediate and effective response to the COVID-19 pandemic is, of course, vital but longer-term dimensions are even more critical.  While it may seem impossible to leadership and management teams already working excruciatingly long days, too few are dedicating needed time, effort, and resources to focus on the future.

When ready to shift from surviving to thriving mode, FIRST set your sights FAR into the FUTURE.

  • Eliminate Blind Spots (or at the very least manage them)
  • Create Your Compelling Leadership Narrative

Then begin transforming the college culture with a solid foundation built on Trust with Creative Partners comfortable with Level III Conversation.
