April 27-28, 2018- Philanthropic Leadership Program

Unlocking your leadership potential in just 2 days!

This unique leadership program is designed for (and with) professionals working in the charitable and non-profit sector that are motivated to become leaders who truly inspire their teams, boards and donors to excel. Our sector is desperate for high quality managers and leaders who can help the entire organization work collectively to achieve the results their mission is calling on them to create. This unique 2-day program will help you develop specific skills and techniques, along with personal confidence in your own unique leadership style.

Leadership is a complex journey that requires incredible self-awareness along with a savvy set of skills in the area of strategic thinking and planning, managing relationships, achieving goals, and motivating our teams. These skills take time to develop and there is no perfect formula that you can use each and every time. This special program format will include a two-day deep dive intensive to explore your strengths, develop leadership competencies and discuss “real world” situations that bring leadership to life, followed by personal coaching and group check-ins that create continuous learning, growth and accountability beyond the two-day intensive.

Leadership Topics include:
Strategic Planning, Board Development, Financial/ Budgeting, Managing your team, Personal Strengths and Leadership vs. Management awareness.

What you will leave this program with:
• Increased self-awareness of your strengths and how they impact your leadership style
• Personalized StrengthsFinder 2.0 Assessment results
• Conversation techniques for managing board and staff performance
• Planning and goal setting techniques that will support you and your organization to achieve results
• A sense of connection and community with other leaders in the sector
