Director's Message

“Successful leaders see the opportunities in every difficulty rather than the difficulty in every opportunity.”    Reed Markham 

Founded through the vision of the Greater Baltimore Committee over 30 years ago, The LEADERship engages, inspires and connects many of the region’s best and brightest individuals to realize their greatest potential as leaders within the region, within their organizations and within themselves.      

Each year since 1984, a new LEADERship class comprised of individuals from private, public and not-for-profit organizations is formed, and transformed, ultimately joining an incredible network of active alumni whose voices and actions influence the growth and development of Greater Baltimore.

We believe John F. Kennedy was right that “Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.”    

The world is evolving more quickly than ever – challenges and solutions are more complex and interrelated.   The Leadership is forward-focused with a bias to catalyze service and involvement.   We provide each class and our alumni network with:  

·         Knowledge:  Understanding the assets, challenges and trends that affect quality of life and economic vitality of the region 

·         Perspective:  Hearing and debating diverse viewpoints about what’s working, what’s broken and what is most promising on the horizon 

·         Engagement:  Questioning the answers; interacting with those in power, and the powerless

·         Experiences:  Participating in unique, hands-on activities, often with behind-the-scenes access and insights 

·         Skills:  Honing talents for more effectively collaborating across difference, influencing without authority, and designing creative approaches to Baltimore’s most vexing challenges and greatest opportunities    

It is no surprise that so many of our region’s CEOs, managing directors, not-for-profit board members, faith, community and political leaders share The LEADERship in common.   Lifelong connections made during the LEADERship program experience and through the alumni network are of incalculable value. 

If you are a demonstrated leader in position of responsibility who hasn’t yet reached your greatest potential, we invite you to learn more.
