Exploring the Role of Former Chancellor of Schools in New York City, Joel Klein, as a Mentor: A Case Study

Part of the role and legacy of leaders in business, politics, and religion has always been mentorship of the next generation of leaders. Similarly, part of the preparation process for the next generation of senior leaders across sectors has been learning from leaders themselves. Talent management, and particularly developing the next generation of systems level leaders has been an elusive and challenging topic within education.

In this case study, learn about Joel Klein’s role as a mentor during his time leading the New York City Department of Education. Regardless of whether your viewpoints are aligned with what you know of Klein’s administration, you won’t want to miss this exploration of how several protégés learned from him, and now have gone on to adapt that learning in the context of their own leadership.
