Leadership Development: A Meaning-Making Art.
Lyman, Linda L.
This paper describes a retreat, "Leadership without Easy Answers," which was held for leaders in the arts community. It examines whether the retreat had a positive impact on the leadership work of the participants, and it discusses ways that the retreat influenced leadership development in arts advocacy. Attending the retreat were three-person teams representing the states of Colorado, Montana, Nebraska, and Wyoming. Each participant held a statewide leadership role in the arts in his or her respective state. The retreat was designed to model the theory of leadership development, giving persons an experience of one approach to leadership while at the same time honoring who they were and what they believed. The program was comprised of four sessions. The opening session focused on six different definitions of leadership. Session 2 was spent examining a hypothetical case study in which a rural community struggles with various problems. The third session explored various aspects of leadership, and the last session looked at the nature of change and the difficulties inherent in change. The retreat's impact on the participants was mostly positive. They believed that their time together had been useful and that they would be able to apply what they had learned. (RJM)
