Meeting the Leadership Challenge, March/April 2015

Volume 23,  Number 2   //    March/April 2015

In this issue of Trusteeship, we address the leadership challenge at our colleges and universities. We start off with five experts who talk about the experience of coaching, and of being coached, in Meeting the Leadership Challenge: Why the Most Effective Presidents and Chairs Seek Coaches. E.B. Wilson then walks us through the steps of building the necessary policies and practices to build a thoughtful board in Creating a Cadre of Leaders on College and University Boards. The importance of the president’s senior cabinet is covered by Artis Hampshire-Cowan in Marshaling the President’s Cabinet for Effective Governance. Cathy Trower suggests ways to avoid roadblocks to good governance in Flipping the Boardroom for Trustee Engagement: Why and How. We close up the issue with Leo Lambert’s experience of cultivating talent from within the institution in A “Grow Your Own” Strategy to Develop Administrative Leadership.
