Leading positive change is now a fundamental part of every provost’s and vice president’s role. While it might not be an overt item on the senior staff agenda or professional development plan, success in this space is paramount to the success of any administration. Come discuss how to message change, demystify “innovation”, manage resistance, and ground in positive motivations. Learn 44 commonly stated objections to change within higher education, plus 11 innovation motivations that work to overcome those objections in this session that is both philosophical and tactical.

The interactive seminars cover important issues that currently impact independent higher education. They are designed to be practical and hands on with clear learning outcomes. Each will include examples of replicable models for participants to use when faced with the situations covered by the seminars.

These interactive seminars are free of charge and do not require pre-registration, but they have limited capacity. Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Seminars will be repeated at 10:45 a.m.
