182: Finding Your Calling — Part 1

What does it mean to have a calling? How do you know you’re living a life of contribution? As a leader in higher education, are you living up to the mission of your institution? Howard and Pete get to share some rare face-to-face time in this conversation coming to you from a shady porch at The Chautauqua Institution in New York.

169: Climbing the Arc of Change in Independent Schools with NBOA’s Jeff Shields

Friend of the show Jeff Shields is back to talk about building monumental change in independent schools as a preview of the 2017 NBOA Annual Meeting in Washington D.C. As President and CEO of NBOA, Jeff’s charter is to lift business officers beyond the baseline expectations of their roles and help them become change agents and true leaders in their schools. This week on the show, Jeff offers insight into one of the key learning opportunities to that end for independent school business officers, the NBOA Annual Meeting platform.

160: Building Strategic Thinkers in Your Organization

This week, we’ll focus on the key factors to bring strategic thinking to your work that asks the big questions. Strategic thinking is not linear or delivering on daily work. It’s about peering around corners, across horizons, and uncovering trends that exist beyond the bubble of your institution.

159: Headlining Your Success to Inspire Others through Emotion, Curiosity, and Clarity

We make split second decisions based on the headlines we see every day. Will we read the next email that hits the inbox? Will we take the time to read the next project plan in the pile? The answer depends on the power — and the persuasiveness — of the headline.

158: Becoming a Strategic Communicator

Listen to Becoming a Strategic Communicator on Navigating Change The Education Podcast

Many of us, whether we recognize it or not, are doing an ineffective job at communicating strategically. If part of your day-to-day role is to move people and projects forward through influence, this week's conversation is for you. It starts with a deceivingly simple premise: your teams care less about what you want to do, than why you want to do it.

In part one of a three-part conversation we dive into what it means to be a strategic communicator. Do you have a clear understanding of your own engagement to your projects? When asked, can you answer why the work is important to you? Do you understand how your message connects with your constituent audiences as a leader of your institution? This week on the show, learn key insights that will not only allow you to present the work of the campus clearly, but also engage and inspire your teams at the same time.

155: The Art in the Mission: Graphic Facilitation with Karyn Knight Detering

Great leaders know the importance of using visuals to move groups to action. This week on the show we’d like to introduce you to an expert in the art and technique of telling a story quickly, powerfully, and artistically. 

Karyn Knight Detering is a visual communicator and founder of Ideas Take Shape, a graphic facilitation company dedicated to helping her clients find creative ways to communicate their ideas and concepts. Her expertise is two-fold: she’s an artist, but also an improviser, able to listen for key concepts and ideas in order to craft a story that cements understanding for businesses looking to drive change. She’s done some fantastic work for Howard and we’re thrilled to be able to share her ideas with you today.

Listen to Broken Leadership Teams on Navigating Change The Education Podcast

Hard skills and soft skills. We’ve certainly discussed them before.

This week, Gail Gregory and Howard Teibel share their insights into the challenges they’re seeing across institutions. Our sensationalist headline aside, the not-so-surprising key learning: institutions replete with technical talent may be facing a shortage in the soft skills that can keep people working together and delivering results!
