Administrators, faculty, and staff of advanced education institutions strive to deliver high-quality educational experiences for students in what are typically politically-charged and resource-strapped environments.
The primacy placed on independence, academic freedom and critical thinking can have a shadow side: institutionalized competitiveness, isolation, and incivility. These vertically structured organizations tend to breed entrenched silos that can insulate poor behaviour and dysfunctional relationships from observation, accountability and remediation. People are left with little recourse other than tolerating bad behaviour, initiating formal processes, or escalating to extreme behaviours themselves.
ProActive helps advanced education institutions create communities of collaboration and cooperation by delivering effective culture change programs, facilitating processes to get conflicted groups back on track, and providing effective ways to assess and manage threats of violence.
