This case study focused on how community leadership programs can reduce the gap between the community’s leadership needs and the available supply. Citizen involvement in leadership efforts is decreasing and the need to identify, train, and transform leaders who can fulfill leadership roles in the community is increasing. Community leadership programs have arisen as one venue to reduce the gap between a community’s needs and the supply of leaders committed to supporting future community involvement. A review of the current literature revealed little research on why people join and maintain membership in community leadership programs from personal values satisfaction perspective. Corporate leadership development programs can increase effectiveness by training formal and self-leaders using company values as a base.
