American Leadership Forum

For three decades ALF has worked very intentionally to bring together a mix of diverse leaders from virtually every sector of the Houston community -- not to debate, but to co-create new possibilities. Characterized by a strong belief in the human capacity for collective intelligence, the ALF program focuses on the principles of a different kind of leadership to empower Fellows to envision effective solutions and take coordinated action to address the community’s pressing issues.

The fundamental principles of the American Leadership Forum (ALF) assert that when individuals suspend judgment and allow themselves to truly hear meaning and context from others without the interference of cultural and ideological filters – this potential is unlocked.

…to serve the common good

It’s no coincidence that Houston’s growing recognition as one of America’s great multicultural cities for more than 30 years parallels the growth of the American Leadership Forum. Since 1980, ALF has worked very intentionally to bring together a multicultural mix of extremely diverse leaders from virtually every sector of Houston’s community not to debate, but to co-create new possibilities. Characterized by a strong belief in the human capacity for collective intelligence, the ALF program focuses on the principles of a different kind of leadership that empowers Fellows to envision effective solutions and take coordinated action to address the community’s pressing issues.

This commitment to community and cooperative spirit is nurtured through a yearlong program in which ALF Fellows engage in dialogue, learn to value their differences and unique perspectives, find common ground and build lasting relationships.
