Executive Coaching for Department Chairs and Administrative Leaders [+]

    The University provides executive coaching to all new department chairs in the university. The objectives of the Executive Coaching for Department Chairs Initiative are to provide leadership development inputs, promote improved academic workplace cultures, and enhance overall recruitment, retention, and development of faculty. Each executive coach is a professional who has general academic and organizational experience and provides leadership, performance and career-related advice. Coaches help the participants determine their leadership vision, goals, plans, and actions. They give advice, resources, and feedback on how to best accomplish the identified vision.

    In addition the University provides Hotline Coaching to continuing department chairs and faculty facing unique opportunities and challenges. Hotline coaching enables participants to receive short, quick-turnaround coaching from a professional coach to help them to address and resolve a specific issue, opportunity or problem.

    For information on the executive coaching and hotline coaching initiatives, please contact the office of the Deputy Provost for Academic Affairs; Phone: (216) 368-4389 / Fax: (216) 368-4325.
