Leadership Character Awards

LCA started in 2003.  The purpose of the Leadership Character Awards remains constant – to recognize leaders who display character, based on alignment with TLG’s Leadership Character Model.

TLG presented the program from 2003 to 2013.  In 2014 an alliance was formed with the Robert K. Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership.  Proceeds from the event went to the Center.  “Greenleaf’s” HQ has now moved to Seton Hall University in N.J.  This created an opportunity to further align the LCA with the TLG Mission

2020 will be the first year that award proceeds will be directed to the Turknett Leadership Foundation, which is currently in the early stages of formation.  The working plan is for the Foundation to support one or more deserving high school juniors or seniors who best represent the principles of leadership character, through word and deed.

The TLG Foundation’s mission will not only call attention to the principles of leadership character while rewarding one or more deserving youth, it will also create a lasting legacy to Bob and Lyn Turknett who for over 31 years have spread the leadership character message while impacting thousands of people, teams, and companies through their work
