In today’s changing environment, leaders must be adaptive and strategic thinkers, balancing long-term priorities while managing day-to-day concerns. Such times require that leaders act as agents of positive change, igniting creativity and innovation in their organizations. No matter what we do to put in place the best systems and thinking available to us, it is often the human factor that brings us up short. In complex organizations involving multiple stakeholders, how do we manage expectations, avoid burn-out, and handle conflict? How do we hire the right people for the right staff positions and hold on to them over time? And, most importantly, how do we leverage people’s talents and nurture a healthy organizational culture in order to propel our institutions forward productively?
