2009 Lewish Memorial Lecture Presenter Gary Rhodes

[Archived from October 9, 2009]

The Temple has announced that Gary Rhodes will be the next presenter in the Martin and Ginger Lewis Memorial Lecture Series. Rhodes will cover “Leadership for an Uncertain World,” on Sunday, November 1, at 7 p.m. at The Temple. The community is invited.

In our increasingly complex, uncertain, yet interdependent world, leadership practices must move beyond the embrace of individual heroes and heroines to focus on leadership communities that together set direction, alignment, and then commit to imperative change results. This lecture will explore the power of leadership as a unified, collective force, for adaptable, sustainable, leadership culture change.

A question that will be explored is: Are Jewish organizations currently embracing these collaborative, interdependent, leadership practices?

Gary Rhodes is a principal consultant with Leading Edge Solutions, a consulting practice emphasizing individual, team, organization, and culture development, and is a Senior Fellow Emeritus with the Center For Creative Leadership.

For 15 years he was a professor at the Kent School of Social Work at the University of Louisville. He has spent his career engaged in developing leaders and organizations. Since 2000, he has devoted himself to working with leaders and organizations in both the public and private sector to transform their leadership cultures in support of organizational agility, speed, execution, unification and readiness in responding to complexity and uncertainty.

This work is reflected in a recently published book Rhodes co-authored with John B. McGuire, Transforming Your Leadership Culture.
