About

Wallace K. Pond Bio   

WallaceKPond.com is the website of Idea Pathway, LLC and Dr. Wallace Pond, an educator, author, executive, entrepreneur and executive recruiter, 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, executive recruiting and other activities. Wallace is also partnered with Dr. Michael Bills as a co-founder at WasatchEducationPartners, which was established to support higher education governing boards and executive teams.

After three decades in a variety of educational and private sector settings, Wallace 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.

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 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.

Dr. Pond entered the field of education over 30 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 as well as C-level managerial and leadership experience, offer a unique and valuable perspective on contemporary education, organizational challenges, and new leadership models. See some of Dr. Pond’s selected presentations and publications here.
