Long-term institutional vitality is created by presidents and boards, and entails developing campus talent committed to excellence, enhancing campus practices that enable collaborative action, and seizing opportunities which inspire organizational creativity and continual renewal.
Leadership transitions and organizational change can be opportunities for institutional renewal. I work with boards and presidents in a number of ways during periods of change, including presidential transitions. These activities include partnering with the outgoing president to produce a smooth handoff; maintaining the cabinet’s momentum during the transition; working with the board to clarify its vision and develop a search strategy; onboarding the new president for full integration into the campus and community; building the president – board chair partnership; and developing a high-performing administrative team.
CEO coaching in the first year of a presidency is a benefit many boards now include as part of the compensation package. For strong presidential beginnings, a priority-driven agenda jointly set by the board and president is critical. Additionally, there should be focus on the institution’s strategic plan. I work with presidents and boards to establish the right platform for successful strategic planning as well as to manage the oftentimes sensitive issue of completing the former president’s plan before embarking on a new one.
