Leadership Excellence in Higher Education

Leadership in Higher Education is Unique

Most leaders begin their careers as academics with deep knowledge in their content area. But many are then tasked with leading committees, chairing departments, managing budgets and getting results with little positional authority over the groups they lead. What these leaders need is the ability to align others around a vision, to positively influence others, and build collaborative, supportive teams.

The Right Reflection has proven success in accelerating leadership development for professionals in higher education. We help leaders leverage their authentic leadership strengths and address reactive tendencies that may be limiting their effectiveness.


Working with Pam Hernandez is of immense help to College of Saint Mary as we seek to ensure an organizational culture attentive to our mission and values.   Pam has done executive coaching with several of our faculty and staff leaders and her work has resulted in the building of stronger, more functional teams.  Pam listens carefully, provides feedback skillfully, and works to ensure results to benefit the individual person as well as the team.
