In this three-part webcast series, leadership experts and museum directors will engage in a frank conversation supported by leadership case studies about the skills needed to be an adaptive leader at any level in today’s museums. 

We will explore what it means to be a leader in a museum that fosters growth and learning; how to better communicate in distinct, relevant and consistent ways; and how creating a strategic career plan plays an important role in leading a rich professional life and building or supporting a healthy organization.
