Seeking the advice of an executive coach is becoming increasingly common in educational and nonprofit institutions across America. After all, professional athletes have coaches, so why not university administrative leaders? Today's administrative leaders are working in an unprecedented era of post-COVID changing employee expectations, and relentless pressure to successfully lead their institutions despite scaled back funding and scarce resources. Providing leadership development opportunities for valuable leaders who are seeking strategies to upgrade their administrative savvy and performance is an essential critical success factor.
