Public Leadership

The Public Leadership Member Community serves and involves those who practice, study, and teach leadership in the public domain. This includes civic, governmental, military, nonprofit/NGO, political, and social organizations and institutions typically characterized by a primary emphasis on serving the public good. Increasingly so, this also incorporates collaborative efforts between the aforementioned organizations and for-profit businesses.

The community facilitates sharing of ideas, expertise, and resources to address public leadership issues; encourages the development and application of concepts, theories, research, and practical experience in the field of public leadership; and highlights emerging issues, challenges, opportunities, and best practices.
