Cultivate Transformational Leadership


CNCA supports city leaders’ transformational leadership development needs so they can excel in their roles as change-makers.


Now, more than ever, sustainability directors and senior staff must be effective change makers and managers. Transformational change requires a unique skill set that is not often cultivated in government officials. But strong leadership skills are critical if we are to spur transformative action.


CNCA supports members’ leadership skills through the following: 

  1. Assessing members’ leadership strengths and needs, and identify common structural, technical and political barriers to implementation; and
  2. Offering a curriculum of experiential, transformative development and skills building.
