Mandel Center for Excellence in Leadership and Management, August 24, 2007

This study reports on a survey of presidents and chief executives of Jewish Community Centers (JCCs) across North America. The study seeks to understand the distinctions between effective and ineffective presidents based on the data collected in the survey. A multitude of lenses are presented through which one can measure effectiveness. Ultimately, nine qualities are presented as exemplary traits for effective JCC leadership. The most important one, according to the authors, is the ability of the JCC president to inspire and develop leadership among other lay leaders.
