dc.description.abstractThis inquiry engaged chief administrative officers from Alberta cities, towns, and villages to explore: How might the perspectives and experiences of senior leaders in Alberta municipalities inform leadership development for emerging leaders? Using an action-oriented methodology to create opportunities and identify potential for improved leadership development in the municipal sector, this thesis shares insights from senior leaders to help equip emerging leaders in the face of a sector-wide crisis. The findings revealed (a) leadership development is important, (b) experience provides effective learning, (c) an emerging leader’s approach may indicate their success or potential downfall, (d) values inform leadership practice, (e) leadership support is key to developing emerging leaders, and (f) everyone requires leadership development. The recommendations suggest associations (a) share information, (b) collaborate across the sector, (c) create a learning forum, (d) educate the public, (e) for leaders to self-discover, and (g) for municipal organizations to support emerging leaders. Keywords: local government, municipality, elected officials, leadership development, emerging leaders, chief administrative officer.
