On Thursday, January 18th, Howard will be delivering the opening keynote address at WACUBO’s Leadership Symposium titled, Innovators as Orchestrators of Change. As emerging leaders, we are challenged by the question of where to focus our time and energy that makes a difference. What does it mean to be an orchestrator of change and lead others through these historical times in education? Orchestrating change demands a mindset and cultivation of mood that opens possibilities for us and those around us. Now more than ever, we need to build bridges between our administrative functions, the academy and countless constituents we serve. This session will explore the type of personal skills and sensibilities that build a resilient and adaptable culture and keep us focused on the larger mission of our institutions.
- How can we orient ourselves to leading others through change versus being an individual contributor?
- In what we can we influence and positively impact higher education culture?
- What does it mean to build a culture of experimentation, resilience, and adaptability?
