Pima Community College CBO David Bea is an Educator and Leader through Change

David Bea serves as Executive Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration for Pima Community College in Tucson, Arizona. This week on the show, Bea joins Megan Strand for a conversation on the challenges of teaching, learning, and leading through COVID and more.

“There are two approaches that are core to how I manage,” says Bea. “The first is teaching. If the audience doesn’t understand what I’m talking about, the organization isn’t growing. We’re all educators in that realm. Second, explaining my decisions to my direct reports is important for their development so they can see what the factors are in decisions and how factors are weighted in the final outcome.”

Join us this week for a conversation with David Bea as he takes us through his efforts to lead and educate his team and his institution through crisis and change. Listen for his insights in developing future CBO leaders, even in times of great change.
