We partnered with the Annie E. Casey Foundation to explore the viability of bringing an Evidence Based Practice to the field of leadership development. The foundation is interested in how this approach could scale its leadership work and improve the lives of kids and families. The final report is included below.
- Evidence-Based Practice and Leadership Development Meeting Synthesis (November 2010)
- On November 7, 2010 twenty-one funders and evaluators gathered for 1 ½ days to have a conversation about evidence-based practice and leadership development sponsored by the Annie E Casey Foundation. The session began with an introduction to Evidence-Based Practice and some examples of how EBP has been applied in the field of leadership development. We took an in-depth look at the Theory of Aligned Contribution and the Leadership in Action program with Victoria Goddard-Truitt. Powerpoint slides from both presentations are available at the meeting wiki, along with an overview of the purpose, process, and content of the meeting.
- Further Reflections on Evidence-Based Practice and Leadership Development: Developing Hypotheses and Case Examples (October 2010)
- LLC invited its members to participate in a survey that guided them through a process of creating a working hypothesis to make explicit the assumptions and expectations of their leadership program: who is reached, with what supports, and for what purpose. This document shares the hypotheses. We also share case examples and lessons learned from two leadership initiatives that have formulated leadership hypotheses that are being researched and tested in multiple settings. We highlight these examples to encourage others to consider a more intentional approach to developing an evidence base for their leadership investments.
