The Naifeh Center for Effective Leadership Partners with THEC/TSAC

 

To kick off 2018 the Naifeh Center for Effective Leadership has partnered with the Tennessee Higher Education Commission & Student Assistance Corporation for a two year leadership academy with 10 cohorts serving 120 state employees. This Leadership Academy is designed to encourage lifelong learning for all employees and providing THEC/TSAC staff with opportunities for professional growth.

The first session of the academy was held for 19 executive leaders of the THEC/TSAC Leadership Team in Nashville on January 10th. Dr. Macel Ely facilitated the session and the topics covered during the day included how to maximize strengths on various leadership teams and how to utilize best practices in bridging the general gap in the workplace. All 19 members of the Leadership Team were engaged throughout the day and were excited about the opportunity to go back and learn more about their respective team’s strengths.

Executive Director Mike Krause had this to say about the start of the new leadership academy,

“As our team continues to try to find new ways to support student success and reach Tennessee’s Drive to 55 goal, the leadership development training provided by the Naifeh Center team was priceless. They provided an opportunity for us to establish a common foundation for leadership in our agency, and the training will pay dividends for years to come.”
