Cambridge Leadership Initiative (CLI)

The City is requesting proposals to develop and deliver a formal leadership training program that will further build the cultural competency skills and effectiveness of employees and enhance the leadership capacity of leaders, managers, and supervisors throughout all City departments. Building “bench strength” so the next generation of leaders will be able to seamlessly step into key roles and meet the challenges of moving from peer to supervisor over the next decade is an important goal of the City Manager.
