Our three cohort-based leadership development courses are designed to meet the unique needs of the nonprofit professional across their career. Open to the public, these trainings equip individual leaders with tools for success.


Emerging Leadership Academy


Becoming a social sector leader starts now. Understand your leadership style, hone your leadership skills and learn how to work with other leaders.


Next Level Leadership Academy


Take advantage of your unique leadership style, gain skills and confidence needed to lead within your organization, and better understand community needs.


Executive Leadership Academy


Equip and empower yourself to lead your organization and your community. Learn alongside other nonprofit CEOs/EDs in a candid, intimate environment.




We provide customized trainings, designed for your unique organization, to help you grow and develop strong, healthy teams and people.


We support you in developing your nonprofit’s leadership capacity and your team’s ability to lead themselves.

Through interviews, surveys and conversations, we thoroughly assess your specific areas for growth to customize your training opportunities. Our goal is to meet your organization’s real-time needs to ensure you’re able to effectively and successfully power your mission.




Combining a DIY approach with proven materials developed by our nonprofit consultants, these expert-guided working sessions set your team up for success.


Research shows that when you “learn by doing,” you better retain information and are prepared to take action on what you’ve learned.

Our hands-on intensive trainings are designed to help your nonprofit staff work through, and come away with, actionable results and tactics that have an immediate impact on your work.




Our two board-focused offerings provide board members, and nonprofit staff that work with their board, opportunities to understand board engagement best practices.


Board Essentials


Hosted every month, this workshop provides an overview of the top 10 roles and responsibility every board member should know.


Nonprofit Board Leadership


This course goes beyond the essentials of nonprofit board service to explore the challenges and opportunities that come with board leadership.
