Every school faces succession challenges. Leaders appointed to roles including department chair, associate dean, and assistant dean face the daunting task of stepping into a new role with new responsibilities. These responsibilities require a new mindset that allows them to see and serve the entire institution, think beyond themselves as individuals and their identity within an academic field, and act on behalf of the entire academic enterprise.  These challenges manifest most clearly as leaders initiate change across the organization.

Seminar 1 of the Leading in the Academic Enterprise (tm) series is designed to shift a mindset from that of an individual faculty member to a leader with responsibility for advancing the entire institution, engendering trust and respect across the entire community for institutional advancement.  Participants will acquire the tools and techniques needed to build, maintain, and repair trust and respect throughout the community - skills that help leaders create and support the social fabric that enables innovation and change.  This seminar contains custom-designed cases and exercises that provide highly relevant learning opportunities to facilitate the development of participants' mindsets.

Now, more than ever, the academic enterprise faces an increasingly turbulent environment that requires leaders to engage their community in continuous innovation and change.  Participants will learn practical methods and techniques for leading change from the middle of an academic enterprise to build highly effective capabilities.  In particular, they will learn how to identify and categorize all relevant stakeholders, and design communication strategies and tactics for each.  Using cases and exercises, participants will learn new methods to enable innovation and build new leadership capabilities within the academic enterprise.
