[Silver Series] Leadership Requirements for Boards and School Leaders in Changing Times

| Webinar


Recent economic, political and societal developments have permanently altered the educational landscape for K-12 and post-secondary institutions. As a result, new skills and approaches are required from trustees and educational leaders to meet the needs of current and future students and ensure long-term institutional success. Strong partnership, nurtured consensus, unwavering commitment, and consistent clarity between boards and educational leaders around topics like mission, community standards and foundational beliefs are also critical during these defining times. Hear from Denison University President Adam S. Weinberg on aspects of his unique leadership journey, his views on the most complex and pressing challenges facing school leaders today, and the vital roles trustees and school leaders must play to meet these unique times. Examples and suggestions on how to achieve success will also be discussed, with time afforded for questions and answers.

Learning Objectives: Participants will learn about the importance of the relationship between school administrators and its board of trustees and how to ensure the partnership stays strong and collegial.

This webinar is part of the Silver Learning Series, a series of high-level leadership webinars in honor of NBOA's 25th Anniversary.
