This poster describes the development and implementation of a university-based leadership-development program designed to address the need for community leaders to head up grassroots community development efforts. Program components (leadership workshops, individual leadership assessment and coaching) are described and outcome evaluation data is presented. Results are discussed in terms of community impact. The program also serves as a training ground for budding organizational consultants.
