U.S. Naval Academy is looking for a director for its Leadership Innovation Lab
By DON Innovation - September 19, 2017
The U.S. Naval Academy invites applications for the Director, Leadership Innovation Lab to begin as early as January 2018 in the Vice Adm. James B. Stockdale Center for Ethical Leadership.

The mission of the Stockdale Center is to empower leaders to make courageous ethical decisions. The Leadership Innovation Lab will support this mission by helping the Naval Academy become the world’s leader in innovative ethical leadership development, preparing junior Navy and Marine Corps officers to succeed in a rapidly changing and increasingly complex world.

The Lab will explore, discover, develop, test, and implement cutting edge theories, concepts, practices, and methodologies to ensure the Naval Academy graduates Navy and Marine Corps leaders prepared to protect the peace and win the nation’s wars in the 21st century. It will be a fusion center of thought and experimentation to determine how to strengthen, individualize, and accelerate leadership development by addressing the challenge of preparing new generations of leaders who absorb, process, and use information for making decisions and providing direction to others in a much different way than generations before them.

Although the Naval Academy’s leadership development process has been successful in the past, current efforts will require significant transformation to ensure graduates are prepared for the volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous warfare environment they will encounter in the future. The Innovation Lab Director will provide executive leadership in establishing and guiding innovation efforts for this transformation.

Applications will be reviewed beginning Oct. 2, 2017 but the position will remain open until filled. For more information about the position, go to USNA’s Human Resources website.
