In the best of times leadership takes heart, courage and wisdom. Competence is required, but competence alone is not enough. The adaptive realities of today make college and university leadership more challenging, more vexing, and more uncertain. What a leader has done in the past does not guarantee present or future success. The most successful and effective presidents and executive leaders know how to ask for and receive help. They know that their growth, capacity, sustainability and well-being are ongoing endeavors.
Welcome to Academic Search’s Executive Coaching Practice. Our commitment to identifying and securing talented leaders for colleges and universities goes far beyond executive search. We are deeply committed to the ongoing effectiveness, sustainability and well-being of new and incumbent leaders through our distinctive Executive Coaching Practice solely for higher education presidents and executives.
Wise and effective leadership is necessary for institutional health and well-being. This is especially true in the current reality of profound adaptive challenges. It is critical that institutions invest in their presidents and senior leaders. Strong, thriving and sustainable institutions necessarily depend on strong, adaptive and sustainable leaders. The corporate sector realized long ago that one of the most valuable investments it can make in its key leaders is executive coaching.
