What could we do—of moment—that would further museums and the leaders within? Help us imagine/re-imagine and design/re-design a program/activity. Create with us what may become GLI’s latest offering in service to the museum field. Tell us what YOU think should be addressed, and the ‘how’ and the ‘why.’
In the coming months, I hope to engage you and be engaged. Our practical goal is in 8 -12 months, co-create a prototype, deliver a pilot, and learn from the experiment for the next iteration. That’s it!
I’ll throw one idea out there… What sort of meaningful work could the GLI do with headhunters? It seems these days, a headhunter plays a critical role in the world of impressions for museum leaders—impressions to and from a board, impressions to and from potential candidates for a job. Beyond what we all hear and learn, more or less, through our informal networks about the machinations of a ‘hire,’ how can one bring these conversations to the fore and offer value to all involved?
