More so than ever, we want to thank you for taking the time to open this newsletter.

We have tremendous respect and appreciation for all you are doing to ensure the well-being of your higher ed communities. We hope that you and your loved ones are healthy and cared for, and that you can take a moment to feel proud of the ways you have thrived during this extraordinary year.

Better Together

No personal development plan nor institutional strategic plan anticipated a global pandemic, a catalyzed fight for racial equity, an economic meltdown and a political crisis.  

Yet we persevere. We question, we learn, we grow. We adapt. We invent. And through it all, one thing has not changed: the need for connection. 

We will figure all this out better if we can do it together. 

We value the opportunity to stay connected to you while adapting and inventing: 

  • Throughout the Spring and early Summer our Friday morning “Navigating Together” sessions were Zoom-enabled peer support conversations across institutions. 

  • Our first “Anti-Racism Study Group” is bringing us together with eight other white learners from across the country, creating a space to challenge ourselves to do and be better.

  • We are helping coaching clients reflect on, learn from and appreciate all that they and their colleagues are accomplishing in this uncharted time.

  • And we are reconfiguring our clients' leadership development programs to meet the needs and possibilities of the moment.
Additionally, our Rising Professionals program is one proven way to develop professionally while connecting virtually with peer managers across institutions. This community of practice provides an intimate space for managers to share current challenges, practice essential skills and strategies, and give and receive consultation. 

We look forward to continuing to make the world better together.

"The Rising Professional program was amazing, considering we went through it right when the Covid-19 pandemic hit. Suddenly, goals changed in an instant. I'm not sure I'd be as well equipped if it hadn't been for the program. What a great benefit to have at a very difficult time."
