Flipping the Script: White Privilege and Community Building [more info]

The goals of this monograph are to shine a bright light on these issues, to suggest new ways of thinking and acting, to share solutions where there are some, and to raise questions that challenge all of us doing this work. By doing so, we hope it will help those involved in improving communities to work in more equitable and thoughtful partnerships with community residents and other stakeholders, with special attention to issues of privilege, oppression, racism, and power as they play out in this work.

EvaluLead - A Guide for Shaping and Evaluating Leadership Development Programs PDF file [download] [more info]

This Guide is intended for both evaluation and program staff to use for conceptualizing and evaluating their leadership development programs. Framing their planning or evaluation activities through EvaluLEAD can help program stakeholders to: 1) more fully demonstrate how participants, their organization, and communities do or might benefit from their program experiences; 2) fine-tune a proposed or existing intervention so that it has farther reach and might thus better meet its goals; 3) more clearly connect participation in development experiences to the program’s more lofty bottom line (e.g., to change society for the better); 4) promote use of learning-centered reflection as a central evaluation activity; 5) pinpoint those requisite leadership competencies most appropriate for particular; and settings or program intentions; and 6) encourage more comprehensive discussion about what works, and why.

Handbook of Leadership Development Evaluation External website [view] [more info]

This book provides broad and practical information about how to conduct leadership development evaluations using a variety of approaches, many of which have been recently developed. We have intentionally sought authors from a variety of sectors (nonprofit, academic, for-profit, and governmental agencies) to increase the diversity of perspectives, expertise, and experiences represented in these pages. The target populations and program designs covered in this handbook are also diverse; we believe this book represents a powerful opportunity for cross-program and cross-sector learning. In the rich online companion to the book we offer brief summaries of each of the chapters along with resources for each chapter and links to the resources where possible. This information is available by clicking on the book's section titles or chapter headings. To learn more about the content or ordering the book, visit the companion site now (click on the link below to access the companion site).

Seeding an Evaluation Circle Learning Agenda PDF file [download] [more info]

The Leadership Learning Community has had a deep interest in strengthening the evaluation of leadership programs by sharing evaluation tools and resources, developing common indicators of impact, and developing shared understandings among funders, program staff, and evaluators about the value and use of evaluation. In 2002, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation funded a scan to learn how leadership programs are evaluating their outcomes and impacts. LLC was instrumental in supporting this research, which included interviews and document review of 55 leadership programs. One of the scan recommendations was for the leadership development community (including those who fund, run, evaluate and study leadership programs) to consider developing a shared learning agenda.
