Insights from Inspirational Senior Leaders in Higher Ed Administration
What is the concept?
The internet is filled with advice and inspirational quotes from business leaders. While they are helpful, their wisdom is not always applicable to higher education. They do not address the complexity and dynamics of a college or university campus. There is a gap in knowledge sharing that, together, we can work toward reducing.
I am inviting senior leaders in higher ed administration to share their insights with me and be featured in upcoming articles published on LinkedIn.
Who are good candidates?
Senior administrators with excellent leadership skills and emotional intelligence, who care about empowering others and developing leaders. They have gained wisdom over the years that they are happy to share with others.
Will this take a lot of time?
No! I know your time is extremely valuable so I am making the process as efficient as possible.
You will choose 3 to 5 questions you wish to answer from a list of 8. We will schedule a 15 to 30 minutes phone call to meet and cover these questions. Calls will be recorded so that your words can be transcribed accurately.
If you don't want to schedule a phone interview, you can choose to send me your responses by e-mail.
When the articles are ready to be published on LinkedIn, you will get the chance to read them before they are shared with others.
What are the questions?
Choose 3 to 5 questions from the following 8. Please make sure to highlight what is specific to higher ed (e.g., dynamics between administrators and faculty) rather than general leadership ideas.
1. What do you think is the #1 factor that made you successful in higher ed administration?
2. What approaches have been most effective to build trust and quality professional relationships on campus?
3. What advice would you give regarding how to handle politics on campus?
4. What were the biggest lessons you have learned in your career?
5. What are your thoughts on setting healthy boundaries (to create structure, preserve self-care, and empower others to grow rather than run everything by you)?
6. What beliefs and practices help you perform at a high level without sacrificing your personal time and your wellness?
7. What do you wish every new administrator knew?
8. What characteristics (beyond what is stated in the job announcement) do you look for when hiring an administrator?

What is in it for you?
The most important thing is knowing you are helping younger/newer administrators learn from your experience and make positive changes in their careers.
Secondly, you will bring more visibility to your institution and to yourself nationwide. This is an opportunity to highlight what you think matters most in leadership. You may attract new highly qualified job applicants to your organization. You will be recognized as an influential leader which can be advantageous to your own career too.
But I am hoping your primary motivation is a sincere desire to help others administrators thrive thanks to your insights.
