Presidential Assessment Consulting

Assessing the president’s path forward.

Presidential assessment provides the occasion for a board to deepen its understanding of the president, of his or her leadership, and of the institution. Assessing a president in order to build stronger performance is a process with three stages: ongoing feedback, annual reviews, and periodic 360 assessment.

AGB Consulting’s presidential assessment services:

  • Provide multi-source evaluation.  AGB Consulting collects feedback from board members, faculty, administrators, students, alumni, members of the community, or other constituents such as public officials.
  • Build relationships.  AGB’s assessment compiles information from many sources and, as a result, may help the board more fully appreciate the scope of the board’s expectations and president’s accomplishments.
  • Clarify strategic goals.  AGB synchronizes key institutional messaging, tests emerging strategic goals, and clarifies priorities for the future.
  • Strengthen governance.  AGB helps the president, board members, and all participants to gauge the effectiveness of the institution’s governance practices and decision-making systems and, when appropriate, offers possible suggestions for improvement.

Strategic leadership is crucial to the long-term success of higher education institutions in a volatile environment. Regular assessment of institutional and board leadership ensures a strong partnership between board and CEO and enables an institution to plan with confidence despite the uncertainty.
