About the Episode
The what's what...
Presidents affect faculty and staff engagement in many ways. How these campus CEOs communicate with their employees cannot be taken for granted, even at some of the biggest campuses in the nation. That’s where this episode’s guest, Teresa Valerio Parrot, comes in. On this edition of “I Wanna Work There!,” Teresa discusses why communications from the president’s office are so critical.
A seasoned communicator known as the “president whisperer,” Teresa visits the podcast to share her perspectives about what is possibly the most difficult job in higher education. Teresa’s observations provide pathways to understand how presidents can leverage their individual attributes to encourage institutional brand ambassadorship among employees.
