Leadership Programs Expand

Gene Crumley's thought-provoking courses increase in popularity

What makes delegating tasks and responsibilities so difficult for some people, and why does it go wrong? What is “emotional intelligence,” and why could it be more revealing than IQ in determining leadership qualities? Why do so many people have difficulty in accepting constructive criticism?

Gene Crumley tackles those and other compelling questions in the ongoing series of leadership workshops that he has been conducting throughout the past 12 years for the Faculty Development Program, in collaboration with the Early Career Leadership Program (ECLP) and the Mid-Career Leadership Program (MCLP). His teaching is steeped as much in philosophical and metaphysical concepts as it is in organizational strategy and tactics. And the Faculty Development Program is increasing the number of offerings in response to growing demand.

“Gene is very worldly, and he provides a unique perspective by virtue of his background,” said David B. Schrimmer, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology who was recruited to the faculty last spring. Shortly after Schrimmer’s arrival, he was appointed vice chair, and with his substantial increase in duties he sought training in leadership. Gary Leiserowitz, interim department chair, encouraged him to consider Crumley’s workshops. Schrimmer, chief of the Division of Obstetrics, has enrolled in five courses thus far, and plans to attend more.
