This chapter describes a leadership institute based on the theories of Kouzes and Posner created in Rochester, NY. Participants were surveyed 10 and 12 years after their participation about the impact of the institute on their career and leadership style. The leadership characteristics taught in the institute are compared to leadership characteristics proposed by two library organizations. Due to the similarity, the author suggests future institutes aligned with Kouzes and Posner would be a good way to train future library leaders.
