Managing a Departmental Rebirth

Supporting the Profession Administrators in Graduate and Professional Student Services
Michael Lango

Taking a new position can be a challenge for professionals at any level, and many face the question, “How do you step into a leadership role within a struggling department, change its reputation, and improve its outcomes?” The presenters will share experiences rejuvenating struggling departments and improving employee performance within public and private universities. 

Accepting a new leadership role comes with many different opportunities and challenges. The presenters of this live briefing will share their experiences accepting roles leading departments that were suffering from poor reputations, a narrow viewpoint of their work, an attitude of “but we have always done it this way…why would we change?”

Utilizing two different frameworks, each professional tackled their leadership challenge and were able to turn things around. One professional used Clark & Estes (2002) Performance Improvement Model and Bolman & Deal’s (2008) Leadership Frames to guide his decision making and actions. The other used Watkins (2013) business model focused on the early period of a career transition. Using these frameworks and strategies, they were able to create sustained change within their departments. This presentation will help leaders at any stage develop a theoretical framework and practical guide to leading change and improving employee performance within their departments.
