Leadership as Community Capacity Building: A Study on the Impact of Leadership Development Training on Local Capacity

Abstract:

Part of a larger study on the impact of leadership development, this paper examines how participants in a 1987 Tomorrow’s Leaders Today Program (TLT) used the assets they developed during the program in human capital (skills and knowledge), political capital (understanding how things get done, how decisions get made, and who you need to know and work with), and social capital (relationships within the group and to outside stakeholders and resources) to impact community-level assets and thus community capacity. Using a grounded-theory approach, we identified key concepts in understanding what leadership is and how it works in a community context to construct an open-ended interview protocol. Based on the results, we find that the participants can identify how the training led to increased community assets, yet upon analysis of these data, we conclude that this asset building did not significantly impact community capacity.
