strategies for your organization's civic mission
Helping organizations clarify and pursue their civic mission.

Public leadership is learned and all citizens should take on the role of public leadership wherever they have authority to act. The biggest challenge of our time is whether we can preserve a working democracy and be a self-governing people capable of solving complex and difficult social problems. Does your organization make time and space available to address this fundamental question? Is it in your self-interest to do so? We emphatically say "Yes." Effective public leaders will strengthen your internal effectiveness, and help build a community where your organization can thrive.
