Your Next Leader: Piecing Together the Executive Search Process
Campbell, Dale
Community College Journal, v79 n6 p34-35 Jun-Jul 2009
Trustees and presidents are in the midst of hiring the next generation of leaders for the nation's community colleges. Major leadership development initiatives are under way to address a projected shortage at the highest levels of college leadership--the result of impending presidential and senior executive officer retirements. In 2006, the "Journal" reported on a paper the author published through the FuturesLeaders consultancy entitled "The New Leadership Gap," which confronted the potential problems likely to result from widespread retirements of community college leaders. This article expands on the initial findings of that research related to community college hiring practices. The author discusses how college presidents can make a good hire and talks about new tools for hiring.
