Longevity in academia

Hearing today about the challenges of just creating one login (username and password) for Stanford University, Stanford School of Medicine, and Stanford Health Care seems crazy (still separate IT systems at the hospital and university), yet it’s symbolic of the multiple barriers across the vast institution that is Stanford—an $8.2 billion enterprise.

The micro-environments across the departments are so different, thus making leadership advancement more about fully switching roles at various life / career stages rather than adding responsibilities, which is what typically happens, up to a breaking point.

I think the greatest longevity planning advice for faculty is reducing to 0.8 FTE in any way possible. This sets a boundary of 20% time that is truly independent (not 100% work in 80% time), with time to explore that next potential career evolution. #leadership #longevity #academiclife
