Mel Toomey, Founding Partner
You know you are leading when people around you are inspired by their own brilliance.
Mel is the founder of Generative Leadership Group, an internationally recognized consulting and advisory services firm.
At Generative Leadership Group, Mel works with executives who are committed to developing breakthrough as a strategic advantage. Much of his current work centers on documenting the source of extraordinary results. Today he is best known for his work in integrating organizational change, leader development, and executive coaching.
Mel holds an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters for his contributions to establishing leadership as a profession. He serves as Scholar in Residence at the Graduate Institute in Bethany, Connecticut, where he works to advance his methodology for rapid leader development.
Mel teaches leadership at the Graduate Institute and the University of Arkansas. He is the principal designer for one of the first Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership accredited degree programs offered to mid-career business leaders. Mel is also co-designer of the first certificate program in the emerging field of leadership, faith and spirituality sponsored by the Tyson Center for Faith and Spirituality in the Workplace, University of Arkansas, Sam Walton School of Business.
Mel is the founder of The Center for Leadership Studies, which provides research, development and program material for degree and certification programs.
Mel is convinced that the notion that leadership is a quality that some of us are born with – and others are not – is unsupportable and very disempowering. He believes that anyone who commits to his or her own personal development can become a highly effective leader.
