You can choose to attend the sessions that fit your needs and schedule.

Course contents

Not just textbook knowledge, these workshops discuss proven concepts and tactics that you can use immediately to impact your organization. 

Our relationship driven approach to nonprofit management and leadership separates us from other programs. We do not take a feel good approach, with sayings that leave you feeling good, but lack any long-term impact. We all know we should be nice to others, but then what??? Is there more? We do not promise easy answers to complicated issues; instead, we work to present the problems in all their messiness and work with you to develop an approach that helps you work with others to create solutions that reflect mutual needs.

You will learn not just what is necessary to maintain relationships and effectively lead your organization, but also what is sufficient to create a healthy organization that thrives in challenging times.

Course reviews

“The Leadership Class was extremely beneficial and a great forum to talk with other community professionals and share ideas. We learned about having more engaging meetings, agenda structure, strategic ways to supervise staff, smart marketing without breaking the bank and much more. I highly recommend this class!”
