123: Reflections on volunteer leadership, engagement & becoming an instrument of inspiration

We’re back and settled into our post-EACUBO rhythm, so this week we thought we’d take a few minutes to reflect on lessons learned, lessons (hopefully!) taught, and leave you with some insights on the value of volunteer leadership. The big question: How do we engage the people we’re calling on as volunteers to marshal their energy, enthusiasm, and trust to get them to help us move our institutions forward? From boards to academic teams, this challenge cuts across leadership and calls on us to be at our most clear and creative. 

We continue to learn much from our experience with these business officers and EACUBO 2015 was no different. The truth is, we are not alone. And as difficult as it may be to face our financial challenges, we can take some solace that we’re all learning these new lessons and skills together.
