Leadership: A Big Thing by Karin Chenoweth at Huffington Post on 7 May 14

This article speaks to how a school district in Delaware is developing leaders – their solution could easily be adapted for Canadian use across a wide spectrum of organizations.  I like that they identify people, at an early stage, as being potential future leaders.  They provide learning and development opportunities for their employees.  They also have created a culture where people can share best practices and give mutual support.  My favourite quote:

“Not only does this careful system mean that the district is building a bench of leaders so that it doesn’t have to scramble to fill open positions, but also that it has built a system of leaders who know each other and know how things work and whom to call.”
