LEADERSHIP THAT WORKS

A Study of Theological School Presidents

Published

December 2010

SUMMARY

A five-member research team studied seminary presidents and their senior teams for four years to identify the ingredients of leadership that creates stable, forward-looking theological institutions. The study included surveys and site visits. The team followed ten new presidents as they began their work, visiting them for each year for three years, and also conducted case studies of six “well-functioning” schools. Read the newly published report and visit the site of Duke University’s Faith & Leadership Program to see a forum of comments on the findings of the study.
