Leadership Transitions

Any time a new member joins a team, it becomes a whole new team, with new dynamics, and often, shifting priorities. New members must learn what is expected of them; veteran members must learn to be open to a new member's ideas, and both must learn to trust each other. Leadership Team Services consultants can help teams in transition reduce the time it takes to learn about each others' needs, working styles, and priorities through a variety of resources and consultation services.

One of the most useful services for new teams is a facilitated transition session led by experienced Leadership Team Services (LTS) consultants. Our transition workshops generally focus on two issues: 1) clarifying expectations for the team's working relationship, and 2) identifying priorities for the board-CEO team to concentrate on in the near future.

Customize your session

Other activities than can help a new team move forward quickly are reviewing and updating district or team goals, reviewing or developing team operating procedures, discovering individual work styles, or simply reviewing governance and management roles and responsibilities and how they apply in the local district. LTS consultants will work with your board president and superintendent to design a workshop or a complete consultation plan that meets the unique needs of your team.
