Guest Sherryta Freeman, Lafayette College; Derek Horne, Alcorn State University
18:29 min watch


Lafayette’s Sherryta Freeman and Alcorn State’s Derek Horne visit with ADU to discuss the importance of, and methods for, individual and departmental performance evaluations. The discussion goes into depth on defining roles, expectations, and review processes. Further, the two leaders dive into analysis of departments that aren’t easily measured with objective data, such as compliance and strength & conditioning. One of the most relevant items shared is the importance of regular feedback through constant communication. Grant Higgison, Search Associate with Parker Executive Search, moderates the conversation.
