Quantity is Not Always Quality

Conversations about the need for transformation in education aren’t new. However, this past year has demonstrated that transformation is possible – and at greater speeds than we ever realized. As we look ahead to the future of higher education, it’s filled with both excitement and uncertainty. Today, Dr. Janet Pilcher is joined by Dr. Natalie Harder, President of Coker University, to discuss leadership, transformation, and the importance of integrity and excellence in higher education.

This episode addresses questions, such as:

  • What are some of the biggest opportunities for higher education going forward?
  • How can leaders in higher ed support their teams through the obstacles of transformation?
  • What characteristics will define successful higher ed leaders in the future?

Consider joining us virtually at our DHP Higher Education Leadership Conference where Dr. Harder will be a keynote presenter. You can also hear more from Natalie on her past AYP episodes, #53: Building Strong Leadership Teams and #76 Move Forward by Doing the Next Right Thing.
