In partnership with Case Western Reserve University's Mandel Center for Nonprofit Organizations*, this model of executive leadership education gives experienced managers and supervisors the opportunity to rethink their approach to management situations in practice and revitalize their management philosophy for the new century. The Mandel Center for Nonprofit Organizations is known for the custom-designed learning experiences it has provided for organizations in transition across the country. Now, in this innovative leadership program, The Mandel model has been adapted and organized especially for librarians.

Model for the Program:
Participants attend a five-day residential session in the spring and another five-day session in the fall.

During the intervening six months, participants work on resolving a leadership dilemma they currently face. Participants resolve their dilemmas using a critical thinking template presented in the first session.

Participants work in triads - a writer and two readers. Each participant must resolve a dilemma.

The second session begins with a presentation and discussion of dilemmas and their resolution. The best solutions to the dilemmas will be included in an in house book of case studies compiled by the Mandel Center for Nonprofit Organizations.

The Mandel Center is a partnership of the Weatherhead School of Management, College of Arts and Sciences, Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, and School of Law of Case Western Reserve University.
