COLE Raises Leadership Bar throughout Duke
February 14, 2012
Developing leaders of consequence is a key part of the vision for Duke University and The Fuqua School of Business. For Duke, this includes not just students, but also the next generation of the university's senior leadership.
On January 23, 2012, Duke President Richard Brodhead welcomed 27 new members of the 2012 Duke Leadership Academy (DLA) class, a program sponsored by the Fuqua/Coach K Center on Leadership & Ethics (COLE) and Duke Human Resources. Now in its third year, the Duke Leadership Academy (DLA) is a one-year development course for administrative leaders who are identified by deans and vice presidents across Duke. Past participants include the Head of Duke's Nasher Museum, Associate Dean at Duke Medicine, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education, Chief of Staff for Duke Athletics, and the CFO for the Duke Clinical Research Institute. The program was the brainchild of Kyle Cavanaugh, Vice President of Human Resources at Duke.
DLA is a customized course that allows participants to gain the practical insights, knowledge, skills, and confidence needed for exceptional leadership and helps them to apply them in their daily roles. The program aspires to achieve excellence, innovation, and continuous improvement at the individual, team, and organizational levels as it focuses on effectively recognizing, developing, and retaining talent. The curriculum is based on COLE's best practices and leadership model.
In addition to the DLA, COLE is also involved in the design and delivery of the Chancellor's Clinical Leadership in Academic Medicine Program (C-CHAMP), a program for senior leaders from Duke University Medical Center. C-CHAMP provides education and training to support success, strengthen the pipeline for Duke Medicine's next round of leaders, and strengthen the institution and its culture through engagement and innovation. DLA and C-CHAMP are examples of Duke's collaborative spirit - a distinctive strength of our community. They also highlight the unique multi-level commitment of the university to leadership and teaming as part of the Duke ethos.
