The Thriving Framework Diagnostic Tool is a companion survey to Credo Co-Founder Joanne Soliday's book, "Surviving to Thriving: A Planning Framework for Leaders of Private Colleges and Universities," that allows leadership teams evaluate areas of greatest concern for their institution’s success across the elements of The Thriving Framework® with a comprehensive output that associates concern with levels of urgency for action with each element.

We hope you will use the report of your results in your teambuilding and planning activities.

Examining Your Survey Results

While the survey can be taken separate from the book, we recommend that cabinet members read the book before or after taking the survey to set their results into a general context. For a more comprehensive unpacking and examination of your individual or your team’s aggregate results, Credo’s experienced consultants can facilitate a planning day for you in our offices and share insight about national higher education trends and best practices related to the survey and The Thriving Framework®.

We will go into depth with you about any of the elements in which your institution is seeing a high level of urgency, with the goal of priority-setting for the most productive path forward.
