The Denver Museum of Nature and Science will develop a training program for emerging leaders in the museum. Six cohorts of 12 staff members will participate in a 12-week training program led by a newly hired training specialist to develop leadership skills. The curriculum will help participants learn about themselves, their work styles and strengths, and museum operations and initiatives; the goal is to prepare employees for advancement within the museum, the community, and the museum field. Long-term outcomes of the leadership training include strengthened leadership capacity; increased employee engagement; and progress in succession planning through growing diverse future leaders. This project will develop a tested leadership training model for museum professionals and strengthen the museum’s organizational culture.
