Help your institution lead adaptive change in a more effective way.
Despite the best intentions or even external mandates for change, numerous forces are at work that perpetuate the status quo on college campuses. How can leaders not only initiate but sustain momentum to see new initiatives all the way through?
In this three-day intensive workshop, you will learn a more successful approach to leading change. Using real case studies from colleges and universities, we’ll explore how collaborative efforts helped institutions:
There is a tendency in higher education to hire external “change agents” who fall short of expectations because they attempt to force change without a full understanding of the culture or history of the institution. Given the complexity of the challenges we face in higher education, we need more than these singular efforts. We need leaders who can create a shared vision and gain real buy-in from various stakeholders within your institution. This program will equip you with the skillset and mindset for how to actually do this.
You will leave with a resource packet full of valuable materials including our conference workbook, worksheets, and complimentary copy of Dr. Patrick Sanaghan’s book, Collaborative Leadership in Action. This resource packet will serve as an ongoing toolkit to aid in your collaborative change efforts.
This program has been specially designed for middle- to senior-level leaders who are managing large-scale change efforts. Internal staff focused on organizational development will also benefit from attending this conference.
Due to the highly experiential and interactive nature of this program, attendance is limited to 30 people. You will engage in different simulations and discussions and receive personalized attention to ensure you leave with a tangible plan to move your change efforts forward.
Contact Amit Mrig, President and CEO at Amit@academicimpressions.com or 720-988-1210 if you’d like additional information about the program.
We want you to be satisfied with your Academic Impressions learning experience. If the program you purchased fails to meet your expectations, please contact us within 30 days and let us know. We’ll credit the full amount you paid toward another AI program that may better fit your needs.
Learning Outcome:After participating in this conference, you will be able to more effectively engage stakeholders towards a common purpose.
Why do some people readily engage in change efforts and others hold back? We’ll introduce you to the three questions people ask themselves as they decide whether or not to invest themselves in a group. These also serve as a lens for creating the conditions of participation and commitment.
Homework: Scan the design book and see what catches your attention/piques your interest. Be prepared to discuss this tomorrow.
