Leadership training is increasingly important as impending retirements suggest an oncoming leadership void. Organizations need to train future leaders rapidly for maximal impact on operational performance. Yet, traditional leadership training models are constrained by curricular, participatory, or geographical limitations and frequently fail to deliver the results organizations seek. Through collaborative design and delivery methods, City University of Seattle has developed an alternative model of leadership instruction that involves trainees, their managers, and the organization’s senior leadership. This chapter describes this leadership training model, explaining how it is able to rapidly impact organizational performance for all participants and avoid the limitations that can undermine the effectiveness of traditional approaches to leadership development.
