Are You Prepared?

February 20, 2012

What are you doing to prepare the next generation of leaders for your organization?  If you are a next generation leader, what are you doing to prepare yourself?

Last week, I had the privilege of traveling to my home state to speak to the Mississippi Community College Leadership Academy (MCCLA) on the subject of strategic planning.

The MCCLA was developed in 2009 by Dr. Howell Garner of the MS Community College Foundation in order to start developing the next generation of leaders for the community colleges of Mississippi. They take from 30 – 40 of the young leaders, both administrators and academicians, and have three to four two-day sessions a year across the state with a range of speakers on various topics. Additionally, they are assigned various readings and projects. This is a great idea.

The MCCLA is an effort to “deepen the bench” of future leaders of the MS Community Colleges and a wise move in my opinion.

My question, is what are you doing to prepare your organization for the future? What are you doing to prepare yourself for the future?

Hope it is a great week for you!
