Trust and Inpire Leaders in Higher Education

Presented by:
Stephen M. R. Covey

We have a leadership crisis in higher education today, where even though our world has changed drastically, our leadership style has not. Most institutions still operate from a model of “command and control,” focusing on hierarchies and compliance from people. But because of the changing nature of the world, the workforce, work itself, and the choices we have for where and how to work and live, this way of leading is drastically outdated.
