For much of the past century, the Jewish community required facilitative leadership using the skills of building consensus and rallying the people. Although those skills are still necessary, Jewish institutions today demand visionary leadership, in which professionals articulate and advocate a vision of where they want the institution to go. Informed debate among broad segments of the community is key to the effectiveness of visionary leadership.
