Based in Birmingham, Alabama, Lakey helps us understand the crucial elements for these types of partnerships: well-structured deals, exhaustive communication and vision-casting leadership. Using example cities like Decatur, Georgia and Chattanooga, Tennessee, we learn about how leaders better understand stakeholder motivations and satisfy self-interests for the benefit of the greater community.
