RCLA has partnered with the Evans School of Public Affairs at the University of Washington to produce these Electronic Hallway resources. The Leadership Stories and associated Usage Notes are an especially good fit with courses on leadership, nonprofit and public management, strategic planning, community organizing, and social movements.
These Leadership Stories focus on existing organizations that have decided to focus around new or significantly expanded purpose. There are qualities of these groups that set them apart from start-up organizations. Studies of organizations at different points in their life cycle reveal that the very systems that have helped to make an organization strong can keep it from being more nimble or adaptable, even when that is their appropriate course of action.
Teaching these Leadership Stories offers an opportunity to examine these organizations by reviewing how they overcome those organizational and structural constraints and respond to a pressing and evolving need.
