WallaceKPond.com and IdeaPathway.com are the websites of Idea Pathway, LLC and Dr. Wallace Pond, an educator, author, executive, entrepreneur, and therapist (LPC Intern), based in Colorado, with over 30 years of experience, including nearly 10 years living and working abroad. Wallace founded Idea Pathway, LLC, to support organizations, publishing, thought leadership, transformational change, and other activities. After three decades in a variety of educational and private sector settings, Dr. Pond came to believe that there is a better way to do much of what we do–that people really are an organization’s greatest asset–and that we should act as if we actually believe that.
Idea Pathway and WallaceKPond.com is a source of education content as well as information about key leadership and management challenges in today’s complex and turbulent operating environments, and related support services.
In addition to strategic, operational, and academic services for educational organizations, Dr. Pond functions as a vested partner to offer high impact consulting and training in strategic planning, change management, innovation, organizational culture, and organizational health among other important areas, with a focus on improved efficacy for senior managers and leaders. His consulting is informed by three decades of experience in both not-for-profit and private sector milieus. He also provides mental health counseling with a focus on executives.
Dr. Pond entered the field of education 35 years ago as a K-12 teacher and adjunct professor. Over his career, he has spent 20 years in very senior leadership positions in large, complex, multi-site organizations in the U.S. and abroad.
His combination of deep educational expertise, C-level managerial and leadership experience, and mental health focus, offer a unique and valuable perspective on contemporary education, organizational challenges, and new leadership models.
