Past Winners

As communities across the Triangle come to understand the importance of working together, regional thinking and regional cooperation become more essential to our individual and collective well being. Yet, we have few mechanisms in place for rewarding such regional foresight and action. As a result, Leadership Triangle in 2002 established the annual Goodmon Awards in honor of James F. Goodmon, chair emeritus, Leadership Triangle, and president/CEO, Capitol Broadcasting Company.

These awards recognize leaders in our community who are regionally minded - and who exhibit that frame of mind in their personal and professional lives. The categories of winners include individuals, public officials/governmental, organizations, partnerships and Leadership Triangle Alumni (Goodmon Fellows)

Welcome to Leadership Triangle!

Watch this video and you will understand why Leadership Triangle is a leading organization in our region!


Leadership Triangle is a non-profit organization established in 1992 to educate and promote regionalism across the separate communities of the Triangle. It does this through regional and leadership development classes, seminars and awards. We strive to build leadership capacity, cooperation, and networking opportunities across the public, private and civic sector, preserving local uniqueness while acting regionally to deal with issues such as traffic congestion, water quality, housing affordability, open space, school funding, economic and social equity.

Are you a seasoned Triangle resident or have you just moved to the area? Would you like to:

  • Gain perspective on regional issues
  • Gain access to resources in dealing with regional issues
  • Connect with a broad and widely diverse network of other leaders
  • Be involved in enhancing the region's quality of life
  • Improve your own leadership skills

Then consider applying to one of our classes.  All graduates earn the degree of "Goodmon Fellow" in recognition of James F. Goodmon, President and CEO, Capitol Broadcasting Company, Chair Emeritus of Leadership Triangle and regional leader extraordinaire

Find out more about our Regional Program, presented by Quintiles, began again January, 2014.  Classes move around the Triangle, exposing the participants to regional opportunities and challenges, and is a great environment for regional networking and problem solving. Their graduation is Monday, May 18th.  

Our Executive Program began in April, 2013.  It is for those  C-level folks who are new to the area, and their spouses or partners.  It meets five times over the next nine months. This group of executives graduated February, 2014.

This Fall we unveiled a new, creative, dynamic program, Transforming Leaders.  (September-December) It is a fantastic leadership development experience that includes a 360 self-evaluation tool, instructors from the Triangle Universities’ Business Schools, interactions with other class members and Triangle leaders, and individual coaching. Goodmon Fellows who become Transforming Coaches, have an opportunity to learn,or elevate, their coaches skills with eight hours of training by world class instructors, and then implement those skills over several months.

Our College Edition, presented by RTP, invites two students from every university, college and community college, in Orange, Durham, Wake and Chatham counties, to meet in various locations around the Triangle. We are told we are the only program in the region that brings all these schools together. We welcome the input they give to Leadership Triangle as to the future needs of the region, especially for this age group.

The 2013 Leadership Triangle Awards Gala presented by the Carolina Hurricanes were a roaring success. We look forward to a repeat performance December 11 2014, in Bay 7,  when we celebrate the 12th annual awards banquet.

Our Alumni Network is stronger than ever before.  We encourage graduates to view the class as step #1, then involvement with "Goodmon Fellows" through the LT Alumni Network as the on-going benefit of Leadership Triangle throughout the years. Join the LT Alumni Network and reap the benefits of membership.
