As a rural business or organization you the transition of every leader can be dangerous. The leader of an organization can be one of the biggest investments of a rural organization. When someone new comes in, it can be difficult to understand the expectations of the board and at the same time develop engaged employees. Many times, a poorly executed transition leaves a new leader confused, a board disappointed, and an organization in disarray.

He has also provided leadership in the selection and orientation of students and professional staff.
