Leadership Oklahoma Enters 20th Year of Service

By CHARLES CANTRELL

Twenty years ago, Oklahoma’s energy based economy had fallen on hard times. Downward pressure on crude oil prices was reeking havoc on one of the states primary revenue sources. Budgets for state services were stretched thin. The oil industry and related companies were reeling from a myriad of negative economic factors. The bad times prompted a group of state leaders to meet and begin a series of discussions focused on the premise that Oklahoma needed to build a statewide leadership development program designed to identify, teach and challenge leaders. From these gatherings a consensus grew affirming the belief that we all have a stake in developing long-term prosperity and confronting statewide problems through the positive changes that come from effective leadership. This core group of leaders also shared the conviction that leadership must understand the complex differences and relationships driving the diverse tapestry of Oklahoma and in turn seek to find the common ground on which progress can be achieved. The gatherings mark a new era for the state in which a concerted statewide effort would begin to inspire, nurture and retain those gifted individuals who with their talents and efforts help build a better quality of life for everyone. It was the beginning of Leadership Oklahoma.
