  • Approaches to leadership development often center on the development of leadership competencies. The Food Systems Leadership Institute (FSLI) is a leadership development program that seeks to develop leadership competencies in personal leadership, organizational change, and food systems leadership. This study uses an expert panel made up of subjects with experience and expertise in leadership, including leadership in food system organizations to examine whether all 24 of the FSLI's core competencies are of equal importance. After two rounds of surveys using the Delphi technique descriptive statistics and comments of panel members suggest that the core competencies are not equally important and can be prioritized. Self understanding and reflection, visioning, defining and understanding organizational culture, and including/engaging diverse constituents of the food system were among the most important competencies.
