Center for Public Leadership at Harvard's Kennedy School serves the common good


Harvard Leadership Center


The Center for Public Leadership (CPL) at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government has been recognized by Affinity Research's VISTA Awards for having one of the most widely read magazine pieces in 2007. The America's Best Leader's feature in the November 19 issue of U.S. News & World Report, a joint effort of CPL and U.S. News, was read by 86% of those surveyed, making it the third most popular piece for the fourth quarter.

CPL's collaboration with U.S. News involves a selection process, conducted by an independent panel, which results in the honoring of 15-25 of the country's most effective leaders. CPL and U.S. News also jointly commission a public opinion survey of Americans' attitudes about leaders from all sectors of society. CPL then analyzes the survey data to produce the National Leadership Index. This year's index reveals that more than three-quarters of the public (77%) now say that our country has a crisis in leadership. It also provides some thought-provoking findings relative to the upcoming presidential election. For example, the next president's likeability is more important to the youngest Americans surveyed (those age 18-24) and the oldest Americans (those 65 years and older) than it is to those age 25 to 64. But these same two groups believe that it is less important for the next president to be decisive than do Americans age 25 to 64.

Established in 2000 through a generous grant from the Wexner Foundation, the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard's Kennedy School serves the common good by providing cutting-edge teaching and research as well as hands-on training in the practical skills of leadership for people in government, nonprofits, and business. |GlobalGiants.com|
