#INNA14 Applying Management and Business Theory to Community College Leadership

Posted By Karen-Michelle Mirko, Monday, March 03, 2014

Happy to be at The League for Innovation.  Just a few of my notes. Wish I could type faster. Please add your notes to the comments section below.

Presentation on selected theories to apply to community college leadership

Presenter: Neil Bagadiong, M.S., D.M. Ivy Tech Community College

·         Groupthink - Janis

o   Evaluate HOW decision are made

·         Determine what are associated risk

·         INVITE different point of views and encourage DEBATE


Double-loop Learning – Argyris

  • ·         Instead of going back one step of what went wrong, go back to the beginning


Stakeholder Theory

  • ·         Any group that is impacted by college purposes – understand behaviors and background
  • ·         Should include legislators, board, big donors
  • ·         Prioritize who you meet first as a new president


Upper Echelons Theory – Hambrick

  • ·         Leadership put their own stamp on their team
  • ·         Team is a reflection of the leader
  • ·         Can lead to bad decision making – a bunch of Yes men.
  • ·         Need a team that is diverse
  • ·          

 Change Theory – Kezar & Kotter

  • ·         Convince the staff that there is a DIRE need to change


How do you handle staff who is not open to change?

  • ·         Set expectations
  • ·         Expose them to new things – send them to conferences, videos, bring in external speakers
  • ·         Remember you work in an institution – perhaps there is a better role for them
