Ari Betof is an experienced Massachusetts-based management consultant who has previously served as a head of school and lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania. In 2018, Ari Betof founded Organizational Sustainability Consulting, LLC, through which he provides consulting services to social sector organizations, with a particular emphasis on educational institutions. He’s scheduled to deliver a keynote session to the North Carolina Association of Independent Schools (NCAIS) in June 2020.
The NCAIS is comprised of more than 80 independent schools, five of which were founded prior to 1900, that employ more than 3,800 teachers and serve around 38,000 students. In an effort to better serve these teachers and students, the association hosts the NCAIS Annual Educators Conference as well as multiple professional-development workshops, one of which is the Head of School Summer Retreat, scheduled this year from June 22 to 24.
The three-day conference begins with an NCAIS board meeting on June 22 at 2 p.m. A Positive Developments workshop is hosted the following day by Stephanie Lischke. Dr. Betof’s session, meanwhile, starts at 9:30 a.m. on June 24 and is titled, “Tap Dancing on Marbles: Leadership, Organizational Stewardship, and Institutional Sustainability.”
Participants in this interactive session will collaborate to explore and gain a better understanding of topics such as the alignment of resources and strategic direction, and promoting organizational sustainability. The session will also touch on topics discussed from the prior day’s change-management workshop.
