Leading & Governing Associates, Inc. is a leadership consulting
practice dedicated to strengthening strategic decision making and democratic governance.
We facilitate collaborative planning and decision making processes for regional bodies, local communities, and non-profit
boards; and conduct policy design and strategic navigation retreats for municipal, county,
school and non-profit boards and management staff.
We work with universities and state and national associations representing
elected and appointed officials to design and conduct presentations and
workshops for conferences and leadership programs.
We have written about public problems, public decision
making, the role of elected boards, public engagement, and strategic navigation for Public Management, Nation’s
Cities Weekly, Popular Government, American School Board Journal, ICMA’s IQ Report, and Journal of Public Affairs
Education. In 2012, our first
book, Preserving the Public in Public Schools was published by Rowman& Littlefield Publishers.
