Fostering Leadership the Foster Way

Bruce Avolio, Professor of Management & Executive Director of Foster Center for Leadership

bavolio_smallA year ago, the Foster School decided to get into show business. In partnership with UW TV, we set out to produce a show that would inform viewers about the very best things we know about effective leadership, and to do so in a way that conveys rigor (what we say works, has been proven to work) and relevance (it really looks like something you can use).  Each of six pilot shows is broken down into nine 3 minute segments covering different topics, from different vantage points for different reasons. The people who we have included in the show range from entrepreneurs, to senior executives of Fortune 500 companies to faculty and our own MBA students and alum.Take a look at this new show produced by our Foster community for our Foster community.

By the way, over a million viewers have seen this show in its pilot season and it won out the gate the prestigious Telly Award!
