This chapter explains the approaches for leaders to develop skills to narrow the gap between current management policy and stated goals. Many strategies are recommended to encourage out-of-the-box thinking, practice-based action, and active learning. Some options to improve leaders include staffing and partnerships, high-performance teams, problem-solving seminars, better understanding of the relationship between science and policy, public education and policy, and a host of other leadership-improvement techniques that have proven useful in other settings. The leaders of Yellowstone today have an opportunity, particularly the GYCC in its unique role as a high-level, interagency committee, to close this gap as effectively, efficiently, and equitably as possible. Thus, the model of a healthy greater Yellowstone ecosystem guided by enlightened management policy is a widely popular idea and leaders can build the necessary coalitions, overcome dissension, and integrate fragmentation into a vision and action that moves us all toward sustainability.
