1. Executive Development Sessions. World-Class faculty from the University of Pennsylvania and other leading universities will present the latest thinking about issues relevant to Chief Administrators. The 2013 Institute will emphasize Innovative Leadership in the context of challenges that state chief administrators consistently identify, like inadequate funding and budget constraints.
2. Case Study Dialogues. Participants will discuss a case study about an actual challenge facing a Chief Administrator in a high-stakes setting. This year’s case study will feature a compelling story about turning constraints into an opportunity. The case study will act as a catalyst for discussion and provide a reference point that will enable participants to apply the lessons from the executive development sessions to their own experiences, making it especially valuable. By addressing concerns that all Chief Administrators can recognize, the case will give participants a chance to share problem-solving strategies that have worked for them in similar circumstances. NASCA facilitators will lead the dialogues and summarize the resulting insights about leadership, change, and organizational culture.
3. Facilitated Networking. The conference is a valuable forum for meeting new colleagues and deepening existing relationships. NASCA faculty and staff will facilitate relationship-building through both formal and informal activities designed to maximize the number of connections that participants make with each other.
4. Peer-to-Peer Coaching. Participants will have time to share ideas about ways to apply insights from the executive development sessions and the case discussions. This activity will ensure that the conference has a lasting impact back on the job.
