Event Details

Developing Your Non-Profit Leadership Practice

Great leadership enables people and organizations to thrive. Great leadership brings out the best in everyone, and it models the alignment between actions and values.

 In times of constant change the non-profit sector needs great leadership! And our leaders come from many places - on-the-ground volunteers to board members, front-line staff to Executive Directors.

In the non-profit sector, leaders work with limited and changing resources, attend to diverse stakeholders, and often assume multiple roles within their organizations. So, where do you exercise your leadership and how do you want to expand your potential?

Developing Your Non-Profit Leadership Practice has been designed for emerging and established leaders who want to deepen their understanding of their personal leadership style and expand their leadership capacity and impact in the sector.

Beginning with an in person session the course proceeds with a 6 week online portion.


 Participants should plan to invest between 6-10 hours per week during this time period.

Through exposure to new tools and an array of assignments, evaluations and peer-learning initiatives participants will:

  • Cultivate an acute understanding of non-profit management and systems.
  • Develop tools for greater organizational effectiveness.
  • Fulfill assignments that are designed to provide you with hands-on learning opportunities.
  • Explore your own context in the workplace.
  • Access weekly peer coaching and feedback.

By the end of the course you will have explored new approaches to leadership and learning, deepened your leadership understanding and skills, and defined ways to have a greater impact in your organization and community.
