The Goolsby Leadership Academy was established in 2003 with a gift from an anonymous donor in honor of John and Judy Goolsby. John Goolsby is a 1964 graduate of the College of Business with a degree in accounting. Much of his executive career was spent as CEO of the Howard Hughes Corporation. The mission of the Academiy is to educate the nation’s future leaders and ensure they are prepared for the multiple, myriad challenges and opportunities they will face. The Academy is focused on the tenets of personal integrity and “strength based” leadership. Simply put, strength based leadership involves building on the strengths that the individual already possesses, to enhance their leadership skills and abilities. Today’s current and emerging leaders need to understand how to apply and reap the benefits of leadership strategies and practices. The Goolsby Leadership Academy currently provides a select group of undergraduate students with rigorous training in:

  • Developing innate leadership skills
  • Management and decision making
  • Emotional intelligence and motivation
  • Ethics and personal integrity
  • Goal setting and outcome measurement
  • Performance measurement and employee evaluation
  • Group dynamics and team building

As part of their major course work, Goolsby students receive customized leadership education designed to transform leadership potential into leadership reality. At the heart of the student development experience are leadership courses, testing to help each student identify their own leadership strengths and challenges, specialized preparation for entering the work force, and extensive interaction with leading executives from the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.
