Providing training to postsecondary leadership: Opinion

September 21, 2021
Those in postsecondary leadership often could benefit from leadership training, writes Rob Jenkins, who describes three ways that leaders can acquire the training. Jenkins says that off-site training provides high-quality training for attendees, but institutions may be unwilling to invest in this high-cost option. A second option is hiring experts to provide in-house training, which would allow for all leadership members to be trained together, allow administrators to benefit from each other’s experiences, and enable the inclusion of those looking to move to administrative positions. The third option Jenkins outlines is to have experts from your own institution give training. Alternatively, institutions can offer a combination of the three to ensure training needs are met.
