What We're Learning

We are a learning organization and work to be smarter and more effective every year. We never lose sight of the reason we exist: to do the most possible good with the resources left to the community by Archibald G. Bush. Here we share the lessons we learn through our efforts, as well as the insights of our grantees and Fellows.

Bush Fellow Learning Log

"I begin with a string of moments, in no particular order, that unfolded for me these last couple years..."

Bush Fellow Learning Log

"Because this narrow view of leadership has expanded, my goals are not defined by how I view other’s leadership. This is especially important as a quiet introvert because many of the leadership skills that are apparent within those I respect as leaders, are extrovert-type skills."

Our work creating culturally-specific programs was done at the paradigm level - not just mere translation but including different ways of thinking and understanding...We perceived our collaboration as leaders standing back-to-back [in] different directions toward our respective spheres of influence.

Bush Fellow Learning Log
"What has stood up to me and has surprised me about my leadership development through the Fellowship to date is a new or renewed understanding of the importance of being a spiritually grounded leader."

Our work on this initiative also underscored the importance of relationships to effecting change, and relationships take time to build.

Bush Fellow Learning Log

"I have learned about a different kind of courage. It is the courage to look deep within myself to understand and bring forth my intuitive leadership abilities and to be true to those, even when others would like me to do otherwise."
