Excellence in Leadership Program (ELP) Fall 2019
August 27, 2019 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Leadership is Worth the Investment
In modern nonprofits, organizational mission and performance are inextricably linked. Today’s nonprofit leaders cannot afford to expend resources based on good intentions and wishful thinking. The social sector needs to focus on meaningful and measurable change.
Nonprofit leaders and executives are critical to both maximize and sustain an organization’s impact. It is necessary for them to possess the skills and core competencies to inspire and support the people in their organization around this purpose.
The Excellence in Leadership Program (ELP) is a focused, immersive program with over 45 hours of teaching and coaching from expert Faculty and nonprofit professionals. ELP has two main goals:
Develop strong personal leadership and problem solving skills
Apply these skills to the major nonprofit responsibilities and functions
The program is designed to guide participants through a logical and expert learning path. At the end of each day we share implementable tools and practical skills to apply immediately. Participants develop executive skills and a much deeper understanding of their executive responsibilities.
