Building Results-Focused Leaders for Tomorrow

Posted October 27, 2014, By the Annie E. Casey Foundation

The Foun­da­tion has cho­sen 11 local lead­ers focused on issues from com­mu­ni­ty devel­op­ment to edu­ca­tion to par­tic­i­pate in its third class of Atlanta Lead­ers for Results. The lead­er­ship pro­gram, a part­ner­ship of the Foundation’s Atlanta Civic Site and Lead­er­ship Devel­op­ment unit, is designed to gen­er­ate a crit­i­cal mass of next-gen­er­a­tion social change lead­ers in Atlanta.

Pro­gram par­tic­i­pants will strength­en their skills to iden­ti­fy and imple­ment inno­v­a­tive, equi­table strate­gies that are evi­dence-based and results-ori­ent­ed. Over a series of sev­en two-day sem­i­nars, these lead­ers will deep­en their capac­i­ty to lever­age data, part­ner­ships, per­son­al pow­er and orga­ni­za­tion­al author­i­ty to strength­en the qual­i­ty and effec­tive­ness of their work. They also will focus on increas­ing the pub­lic and polit­i­cal will need­ed to decrease out­come dis­par­i­ties and improve oppor­tu­ni­ty, and devel­op stronger con­sen­sus across orga­ni­za­tions and sys­tems about the path­way to achiev­ing results. With dis­cus­sions, exer­cis­es and prac­tice of results-based lead­er­ship com­pe­ten­cies woven into the sem­i­nars, class mem­bers will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to learn with and from a com­mu­ni­ty of their peers. The third class began its work in Octo­ber 2014 and will con­tin­ue through July 2015.
