Coaching in Higher Education

May 29, 2024 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Higher education is perhaps of the most complex, matrixed, and misunderstood of all businesses sectors. From shared governance, to tenure, to student needs, to faculty recruitment and retention, to housing, athletics, town-gown relationships, board interference, leading academics versus administration, fundraising, sponsored research – the list of unique higher education components is relentless. Higher education also remains on the front lines of the political, socio-economic, racial, COVID-19, mental-health, research, and education battles. This group will unpack and explore the myriad of opportunities and challenges of the higher education space and how to effectively coach within it, whether it be with university leaders, administrators, boards, faculty, staff, or students.

The conversation will be led by Fellow, Rob Kramer.

In this month's session we will talk with acclaimed academic and executive coach, Dr. Lize Booysen. Dr. Booysen is an internationally recognized scholar-practitioner in the field of leadership,culture and diversity. With 35 years of experience in leadership and research and a 27 year long career in higher education, Dr. Booysen has served thousands of leaders in educational institutions, agencies, and nonprofits in her capacity as educator, facilitator, consultant, trainer, and coach. In this session we will learn about how she balances being a full professor and an in-demand executive coach, about how she sees the use of coaching in higher education, and what the future of this work looks like. Hope you will join us for this fascinating conversation!
