Dimensions, November/December 2009—Leadership for Change


November/December 2009

At a time of financial challenge, when a CEO’s first tendency might be to hunker down and ride out the storm, it may seem counterintuitive to pursue renewal, form new partnerships, and make long-range plans. But according to our November/December contributors, leaders who keep their institutions focused outward and forward in this way may be doing just what it takes to guarantee long-term survival. In this issue, we analyze the art of adaptive leadership, discover how the Noyce Leadership Institute program is helping its CEO Fellows strengthen themselves and their communities, learn how two Fellows have been applying NLI lessons in their institutions, and recall some high points of ASTC leadership over the past three decades.
