5/04/22 Building a Leadership Culture
Some organizational gurus contend that culture is the primary job of the CEO and leadership team because all other pillars of a great organization rest upon a healthy culture. A neglected aspect of building an effective and dynamic culture is leadership, especially at the middle supervisory level of the organization. It is a dangerous fallacy that leadership acumen is only necessary at the top. Building a leadership culture begins by recognizing and communicating the expectation of leadership at every level of the organization, coupled with the training and support required to develop each person’s leadership skills.
This session will explore the leader’s responsibility for culture paired with the need for an ongoing effort to provide leadership training and support. Tracy will explain his approach to leadership development in creating a Leadership Academy at each organization he led. The Leadership Academy is a multi-session approach to building leadership capabilities and capacity based on Tracy’s leadership model for the social sector, Leadership From The Heart.
