RDA will be providing a variety of services and supports to help organizations strengthen leadership capacity. We will also be writing about it, holding focus groups and doing a lot of listening to the thoughts, ideas and experiences of others on this subject in 2014

I am happy to talk with you about your organization’s needs, your ideas regarding leadership in the public sector and how we might work together.
