When good people get into executive leadership positions in universities, it erodes their goodness and their capacity for self-awareness flies out the window.

Professor André Keet (above) was speaking at the recent virtual summit that was hosted by the Higher Education Leadership and Management (HELM) programme in collaboration with the Council of Colleges of Arts and Sciences (CCAS), a representative association of Deans of Arts and Sciences in the United States of America from 15 to 17 November.

The HELM Summit 2022 was convened to explore innovative strategies in leadership development for sustainability and change in global higher education. The summit also considered practical implications for leadership development in the context of disruption, complexity, change, and pursuit of the truly Engaged University.
