NCCI Annual Conference 2019

  • Grand Hyatt Denver 1750 Welton Street Denver, CO, 80202 United States (map)

Howard Teibel will deliver the closing luncheon keynote for the NCCI Annual Conference 2019 titled Shifting from Problem-Solving to Navigation: Bringing the right style of conversation to transformation efforts:

The convergence of three things — demographic projections showing a decline in student enrollment for the next 10 years, the increasing lack of student affordability, and the underlying question of the value proposition — these three factors make the case to bring fundamental change to higher education. It’s easy to be overwhelmed, indifferent, or resigned by these provocations. How do you engage in issues where there is no concrete solution? In this talk, we will learn what it means to be change agents in our respective roles, bringing a disposition of openness to this uncertain future. We’ll dive into how authentic transformation is fueled by learning how to be in a different style conversation, one that is investigatory, thought-provoking, and allows us to think about the future in a mood of curiosity and shared concern.
