When Maggie Little assumed directorship of the Kennedy Institute of Ethics, she inherited a major transition — and an opportunity to develop an innovative vision to carry the Institute into the rapidly changing future. First, Maggie had to rethink the funding model. Then, she needed to persuade the University and supporters to see the big vision that was evident to her and invest in it. Third, she needed to enlist her staff to create needed change while creating new capacities. Find out what Maggie did next and how she is leading one of the world’s premier bioethics institutes into a future that is even greater than its storied past. This program is a must-listen for any leader who has stepped into an established organization with the assignment to take it to the next level.
