Cultivating Resiliency and Boldness

Speaker: Howard Teibel | Founder and President, Teibel Education Consulting

Boldness is a choice. It lives in that intersection of realism with uncompromising conviction and action.   Most of us recognize boldness when we see it but all of us recognize the challenge of being bold in higher education.  The risk of failure is great.  But while the work of cultivating resiliency and boldness is challenging, it can be learned.  In this session, we will explore ways to show up for others that produce inspiration and motivation to work toward a common purpose and will examine the qualities of leaders who move the needle in their industries, from Jeff Bezos to Steve Jobs and others.

Our exploration together will include conversation and exercises around:

  • What does it mean for your people to bring loyalty to leaders as well as to the mission?
  • How do we build practices that promote true collaboration over simple cooperation?
  • How do we navigate academic, administrative, and trustee concerns proactively?
  • How does emotion resilience impact our effort to lead change?
