Beyond Strategy and Navigating Change — NAEP Annual Meeting 2019, Closing Keynote

In procurement, we often look at issues through a problem-solving lens, but what about exploratory discussions that have no concrete solution? Being a change agent in higher education demands a different kind of disposition and openness to an uncertain future. In this closing session, Howard Teibel will shift gears and dive into how authentic transformation is fueled by learning how to be in a different kind of conversation, a conversation that is investigatory, thought-provoking, and allows us to think about the future in a shared way. He will also explore how social moods and language influence how we invent the future together.

Creating a Culture of Innovation and Creativity — Administrative Management Institute

How do you build a culture of creativity and innovation? It starts with recognizing there are big ideas to be realized and encouraging a new set of competencies and skills. These new skills require uncovering the unseen forces that keep a team from excelling, including fear of failure, lack of candor, and unwillingness to put aside individual needs.

AGB 2019 Foundation Leadership Forum — Making the Case for Your University

In today’s environment, telling the story about higher education through the lens of foundation board volunteers is essential. In this session facilitated by Howard Teibel, we’ll will focus on how best to tell that story to current and future stakeholders—those who are inside your institution as well as those external stakeholders who need to be persuaded. The process of how you communicate that message is undergoing some reform. In this session, the facilitator will share actionable insights about powerful “speech acts” that can transform how you transmit information in new and effective ways. Discussions will focus on telling higher education’s story in an environment of distrust and skepticism; how board members can shape a non-defensive story about the true value of higher education; and how emotional resilience affects efforts to lead change.
