Excellence with Integrity in Practice
We have been practicing our theory and testing our assessment and development tools and strategies for almost twenty years, working with dozens of organizations and hundreds of people.
Community of Practice
More than a decade ago the Excellence with Integrity Institute and The Robert D. and Billie Ray Center at Drake University created a partnership to advance our respective visions and missions. Together, we pursue strategic opportunities in youth leadership, employment and STEM readiness, athletics, education, and organizational development in community and workplace environments.
The Institute’s main focus is on research and development of instructional resources, assessment solutions, and tools and strategies for organizational culture development. The Ray Center’s main focus is on coaching, training, and expanding our collaborative implementation projects across Iowa and the nation.
The Human Capital Survey was conducted by the Greater Des Moines Partnership, The Robert D. and Billie Ray Center at Drake University, and the Excellence with Integrity Institute. Greater Des Moines residents have again responded with high marks in critical areas that indicate we have vibrant communities and an engaged workforce.
