Better Leadership. Better Outcomes.

We collaborate across the public and private sectors to grow a movement for pragmatic leadership in Washington State.

What is the Center for Pragmatic Leadership?

The Center for Pragmatic Leadership or “CPL” attracts those interested in promoting balanced leadership in state government and developing a policy agenda that appeals to the state‚Äôs political center. To build more effective governing coalitions and strengthen coordination across the public and private sectors, the CPL creates opportunities for training, networking, and leadership development.
