Episode Description

Gary Corless, chief development officer of the Wounded Warrior Project and former CEO, has an ability we sometimes view as rare; the ability to really reflect on his experiences and to share the lessons he has learned back with the world. In the final show in our three-part series on culture in organizations, with guest host Randy Chittum, we talk with Gary about some of those lessons. We will hear how a leader actually creates and maintains culture. We will explore the benefits of a strong culture and the challenges of being a culture leader. Gary will also share his experiences of where culture comes from, how it can be implemented to be more than words on paper, and what happens when culture is “pressure tested.” Tapping into themes from the last two weeks, we will pull through threads about what happens when culture is overdone and what it means to attend to culture. As always, the focus is on leadership. We discuss all this and much more on November 28 at 11am EST, join us.

Georgetown ITL Faculty

The faculty of the Institute for Transformational Leadership at Georgetown University are multifaceted and diverse with respect to academic training, practical experience, expertise, and research interests. Perhaps the most striking aspect of the faculty is the community they have cultivated and the dialog they have advanced around leadership development and leadership coaching. Most of the original faculty members – those who helped establish Georgetown University’s leadership coaching program in 2000 – still teach and provide direction for leadership coaches and executive leaders, while new perspectives continue to evolve and inform our programs.

At the Institute for Transformational Leadership at Georgetown University, the faculty are exploring new transformative models of leadership, work, and change that can transform individuals, organizations, communities, governments and the global society. Join them each week for exciting conversations about transformational leadership.
