Higher education has grown more complex in recent years as it faces declining enrollments, contraction of the workforce, and high levels of burnout. As a leader, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and unsure of how to move forward. Because of this, the need to learn new approaches and perspectives to help you solve these tough problems has never been so high. However, given your competing priorities, you may feel guilty or feel that you lack the time to focus on your professional development. Perhaps you’re not certain of how to apply your learning in meaningful ways throughout the day. Too many times, higher ed leaders accept the idea that the work of their unit must come before their own learning and development. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
This video course includes five short lessons that provide you with simple yet impactful actions you can take—every day—to help you advance your learning and leadership development. If you feel like everything around you is out of control, this video course will help you to grow your confidence and agency in order to feel more connected to your growth and development as a leader.
- 1 workbook, complete with 12 worksheets and resources to reflect on and practice the skills discussed in each video.
- Access to The Five Paths to Leadership℠ Self-Assessment: This assessment will help you to assess your leadership effectiveness so that you can better understand how to take agency of your leadership development.
- Valued at $395. Free for members.
