This exciting two-day conference kicks off an amazing year-long mentoring program. The conference will include presentations by seasoned academic leaders sharing their expertise and experience. Each participant will join a mentoring group led by one of the speakers. Over the course of the next year, participants will meet quarterly with their mentor group to build a network of colleagues, and they will meet virtually one-on-one with their mentor on a regular basis to work on their personal plan for growth as an academic leader. Come prepared to have fun, learn, and network with other participants as you fine-tune your leadership skills and develop a personal plan for continued growth in your career.

 

This was the most worthwhile conference I have attended in years. The small group format was invaluable. Very engaging speakers. Looking forward to working this year with my mentor.

It was helpful to learn more about transformational leadership. I have learned about it in the past, but it was helpful to look at it through the lens of nursing academia. It was helpful to see that many others are dealing with the same kinds of issues that I see at my own school and to hear some helpful ways to address faculty development.

Sessions

Day 1 (July 10)

Academic Leadership—What Does It Really Mean?
8:45 - 10:00

Leader, manager, mentor, counselor, mediator, and yes, sometimes even janitor. The roles are endless and sometimes the hours are as well. Together we will build a conceptual framework on which we can pursue success.


Transformational Leader and Coach
10:30 – 12:00

The literature suggests transformational leadership creates environments that promote ownership, satisfaction, and organizational commitment. Being a transformational leader requires empowering, coaching, and facilitating growth...is that you?


Lunch—Overview of Year-Long Mentoring Program
12:00 - 1:00

  • Professional mentoring as a strategy for success
  • Overview of individual and group mentoring goals
  • "What’s in it for me? What am I required to do?"

Breakout Session 1
1:00 - 2:30

The Art and Science of Budget Development and Implementation

1A

Budgets can be a leader’s greatest challenge or best opportunity. Planning and implementing budgets is more than math. Budgeting requires planning, communicating, negotiating, and more communicating...with a little math on the side.

Learning Outcomes:


Faculty Recruitment and Retention

1B

The US Department of Labor Statistics suggests 34,200 new faculty will be needed by 2022 to replace the 10,200 current faculty who will retire and the 24,000 new faculty positions that will need to be added to meet enrollment demands. How will you recruit and retain quality faculty?

Learning Outcomes:


Identifying Faculty Development Needs

1C

An effective and engaged faculty is critical to program success. Strategies to help faculty stay current and relevant in rapidly changing practice and education environments is challenging. Leaders need a plan, resources, and return on investment.

Learning Outcomes:


Management Versus Leadership

1D

Not all leaders are managers and not all managers are leaders. Recognizing the different skill sets needed for each will provide a framework to help academic leaders develop a realistic plan to accomplish the goals of both.

Learning Outcomes:

Group Mentoring Meeting: Starting the Process

  • Discuss common needs.
  • Develop an agenda for work.

Day 2 (July 11)

Leading and Following With Strengths and Values in Mind
8:15 – 9:15

Exploring ways to manage one’s identity, reputation, and legacy as an academic leader can be both a challenge and an opportunity. Recognizing your strengths and values allows you to capitalize on them in your role as both a leader and a follower.


Developing High-Performing Teams
9:15 – 10:15

A leader without followers is just a person marching to his/her own drum. Effective leaders build teams that function collaboratively and have quality outcomes by using sound building blocks.

Individual Mentoring: Starting the Process
1:15 - 2:45

  • Identify personal leadership development goals.
  • Discuss strategies to hold yourself accountable to meeting your goals.
  • Begin to develop a personal leadership development plan.

Survival Skills for Academic Leaders
3:15 - 4:15

A common unspoken theme is, “If I knew what I was signing up for, I may not have taken this job.” Thriving and surviving can happen simultaneously in a leadership position. Prepare for leadership success!
