Developing leadership is central to mobilizing sustainable efforts for change and improvement. Developing leadership is a process of enabling, enhancing, focusing, and sustaining engagement of people in a common purpose. This process creates opportunities for people affected by a problem and other stakeholders to participate, build relationships, and have influence on the change effort. Leadership is often reported as the most critical organizational factor for a partnership’s effectiveness in creating community and system change.
