Chairs Institute: Leading from the Middle
A department chair or faculty leader position can be an interesting and exciting opportunity... or it can be a thankless task that is passed amongst the faculty, with everyone reluctantly taking their turn.
Chairs Institute is a three day retreat offered biennially. It provides an opportunity for faculty leaders to improve their skills. It's a chance to ponder, and if appropriate, adjust their methods, behaviours, and attitudes as leaders. The Institutes are based on the premise that leaders best learn how to be leaders from each other. Creativity in leadership is enhanced by mixing leaders from diverse fields, experience levels and interests.
