The Podcast from Teibel Education Consulting
Navigating Change is a platform for understanding the complex and uncertain waters of change in organizations. Each week, Howard Teibel, Pete Wright, and guests dissect issues facing organizations and teams in transition and offer solutions for the most troubling process challenges.
This week on Navigating Change, Berkeley Professor Ricardo San Martin joins us in a conversation about teaching. What does transformational teaching look like and what does it mean to present that teacher as learner. How can we empower students to explore with each and build a sense of their own ownership in the learning process?
Dr. Daniel Greenstein serves as director of Education, Postsecondary Success in the United States Program, for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. In our conversation this week, Dr. Greenstein takes us on a journey of student success, and presents powerful factors in sustainable financial success of our institutions. This is a conversation about innovation, disruption, and engaging in an effort to take on bold ideas in support of our own future as educators.
Howard Teibel has joined the line-up of presenters at this year's Administrative Management Institute at Cornell University. This week on the show, Howard shares the inspiration for his presentation, Creating a Culture of Innovation & Creativity.
This week on the show Howard Teibel sits down again with University of La Verne President Devorah Lieberman. Today, President Lieberman shares insights into the planning process with background on the University’s 2020 plan, forecasting 30-year career demand, and driving toward sustainability while maintaining agility.
“Jeff, what does Day 2 look like?”
That’s the first line of Jeff Bezos’ 2016 letter to shareholders, a question from staff at an all-hand meeting in which he describes a transformation that organizations can find themselves undertaking without careful and diligent attention. We start our conversation on the podcast today, pivoting off of Bezos’ response and his drive to maintain the agility of Day 1 inside Amazon, with a question of our own: Where is higher ed? Is higher ed in Day 1 or Day 2?
We’re talking about mood today. Now, a discussion of mood may sound strange for you and your academic or administrative team to be paying attention to. It’s far from strange and we’re going to make the case that being receptive to your mood and those of your team is foundational to drive productivity and success for your organization.
One of the realities of complex human organizations is that culture is emergent, that we put teams and departments and structures in place and then we hope. Whatever sort of campus culture that comes out of that cocktail is what we’re stuck with. Our guests today are here to challenge that.
This week on the show, founder and principal of rpkGROUP, Rick Staisloff, joins Howard Teibel for a conversation on leadership from the outside in. As seasoned consultants to higher education, the two address how to affect the way leadership sees themselves, the contingencies forcing change.
“The biggest mistake we make is that we think the best subject matter experts will be the best teachers,” says our guest, Elliott Masie. He’s head of the Masie Center, a think tank focused on how organizations can support learning and knowledge in the workforce and he leads the Learning Consortium of over 200 global organizations cooperating on the evolution of learning strategies. This is how our conversation begins today, but certainly not where it ends.
