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.
Howard has returned from the NBOA Annual Meeting in Los Angeles and brings lessons learned from his time with business officers and leaders of independent schools. This year, the presentation focused on three key areas: Leading Change, Decision-Making, and Strategic Communication.
How do you lead from behind and mentor others to step forward? This week, Howard Teibel and Andrew Menke discuss strategies behind empowering teams to take initiative.
We’re thrilled to welcome NBOA President and CEO Jeff Shield to the show this week. Jeff has worked tirelessly to ensure that this upcoming annual meeting is the best yet, and shares not only a fantastic origin story of the association, but offers welcomed insight around the importance of the business officer in the tight knit independent school community, and the challenges they face in collaborative work across their campuses.
