The Skills Future Higher-Ed Leaders Need to Succeed

How do you lead when there is no map? When the territory is unknown?

  • future-skillset-image.png

    In the “permanent whitewater” of higher education, we will need leaders who are:

    1. Anticipatory thinkers. 
    2. Risk tolerant and supportive of creativity and innovation. 
    3. Effective conveners/brokers/facilitators. 
    4. Courageous decision makers.
    5. Resilient and able to “bounce forward” after a crisis or setback.

    Drawing on extensive research and conversations with leaders across higher-ed, this 30-page paper is meant to open the conversation. We invite you to read it, discuss it with others on your campus, and continue the conversation. You can reach out to one of the authors, Amit Mrig, at

Section 2: Spin Straw into Gold

If you're in a pinch and have a murderous king who is demanding that you spin straw into gold overnight or have your head cut off, don't worry, we're here to help and save your head.

The gold we create from straw is 100% authentic gold, and is backed by our personal guarantee. Your murderous king won't be able to tell the difference between our StrawMade™ gold and the real thing. The crazy, brutal, bipolar king will be so happy with the gold, that instead of chopping off your head, he'll make you his queen instead!

  • No Job too Large

    If you've got just a small tower room filled with straw, or a whole gigantic hall, we can convert it all to gold.

  • Overnight Results

    Rumpelstiltskin works around the clock to get you the results you need. We make the impossible, possible.

  • Flexible Payment Terms

    Even if you don't have the money to pay, Rumpelstiltskin is always flexible with alternative forms of payment. Rings, necklaces, future children, we'll accept any form of payment.
