How to get your team ready to pounce on opportunities and handle unexpected challenges!
In this keynote presentation, Dr. Keegan will be discussing the concept of “strategic capacity” and how to develop it within educational teams.
He will lead participants through an audit of their own educational teams to find gaps in their strategic capacity. Participants will go on to use provided materials to build a customized plan to fill these strategic gaps in their teams so that they can pounce on opportunities that come their way and/or deal with unexpected challenges.
