What makes the leader of a successful museum tick? Are there discernible attitudes, philosophies and skills that set a person apart from the thousands charged with moving their institutions forward? What lessons can be drawn from their stories? Now more than ever, success as a museum leader doesn’t necessarily come with longevity, scholarship or curatorial achievement. In fact, successful leaders often bring myriad skills to the table, both professional and personal, that meld into a style that works both personally and professionally.
