Dr. Forbes has a PhD in Leadership Education and has been involved in organizational change for over fifteen years. She is listed in the 2003 edition of International “Who’s Who” of Professional Management, and in 2008, was named Woman of the Year for Community and Professional Achievement.
In The Forbes Way: How to Lead Based upon Integrity, Innovation, and Ingenuity, Dr. Forbes skillfully adapts a strong educational leadership tool for successful organizational transformation. Working with an organization covering eight states in the southeast, she identified the key components and specific actions required for a major system reform. As a result, a specifically tailored tool was developed for use in performance evaluations and future adaptations for that organization. Pamela Forbes has worked intimately and effectively with individuals and systems, developing and establishing innovative models for change. She loves people and finds great joy in helping them reach their full potential through the change process.
Pamela understands the challenge of personal growth and how that growth can affect a business. Though she has been in organizational leadership for many years, she has also been on the front lines. Experiencing how her own personal and professional growth influenced the success of the “bigger goal,” she knows what it feels like to be taken for granted and undervalued as a contributor. She believes that it is imperative for leaders to remember where they came from and how they got where they are today as they work to help others move forward to bigger and better things.
