About the Center for Leadership Excellence

As business culture becomes more global, more sophisticated, and more competitive, the need for insightful and innovative leadership strategies is more important than ever. The Center for Leadership Excellence in the Gordon Ford College of Business at WKU is committed to providing a world-class center for leadership development practices and research information.

The Center will move beyond the methods and styles (the what) used by leadership in the past and the present to the reasons behind those successful strategies (the why) and identifies contexts and circumstances in which strategies can be most successful.

Plan of Action

The Center for Leadership Excellence will initiate an innovate workshop format that provides new information for leadership behaviors; novel strategies for practicing leadership; collaborative study of leadership appropriate for multiple venues; national and international forums with prominent leaders as panelists and discussants to share ideas, experiences, and strategies; and situations to encourage and evaluate the work of researchers and collaborators.
