Leading Effective Teams

Object of Desire: to improve the performance of the HSS team as well as cross-functional teams (committees) at my institution.


  • Begin team and committee meetings this academic year with an explicit focus on SOAR
  • Have team and committees reflect in writing on their progress at key moments over the course of the year


  • Have teams and committees reflect on their own accomplishments at the end of the year, and to provide feedback on the leadership strategies and practices that did or did not impact these achievements.
