Hal at the MIT Leadership Center

As executive director of the MIT Leadership Center, I have the privilege to witness – and be a part of – this institution’s commitment to innovative research, education, and dialogue — across and beyond the MIT community. Our focus is on building innovative leaders at every level of an organization. This kind of distributed leadership matters more today, than it ever did in the past.

At the Leadership Center, we believe that the development of skilled, thoughtful, passionate leaders must be rooted in real world experience. This conviction reflects MIT’s longstanding commitment to a hands-on, action-based educational model that challenges students and executives from their first days on campus to do things, build things, change things.

MIT Leadership Center develops innovative leaders who solve the world’s most challenging problems through:

  • Research that focuses on real-world problems and solutions
  • A network of exceptional business enterprises, enabling undergraduates, MBA students and executives to participate directly in driving innovation
  • Center Associates, including senior faculty from MIT Sloan, business leaders and beyond, who enrich the Center’s activities through their unique perspectives

We created the MIT Leadership Center Video Series to uncover and share the stories of innovative leaders who solve the world’s most challenging problems. I regularly sit down with established and emerging leaders to discuss their leadership challenges and philosophies. Join us by checking out some of the conversations here.
