This Learning and Reflection Forum from the Leadership Institute on Cultural Diversity and Cultural and Linguistic Competence looks at the dynamics impacting leaders with formal authority and those without, and identifies strategies to advance cultural and linguistic competence and cultural diversity in these situations. Viewers will be able to: (1) describe the difference between leadership and formal authority, (2) describe the difference between leaders with formal authority and those without, (3) cite examples of how authority is designated or obtained within cultural contexts, (4) delineate the power dynamics between those who lead by position and those who lead by influence in the networks supporting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families, and (5) share effective strategies to lead efforts that advance cultural and linguistic competence with informal authority.
