"I emerged from the Developing Leaders Program a clearer thinker with a more reasonable voice. It was a great experience for me."
– Past Participant John Powell, Program Coordinator at Henry Street Settlement

In this video, Faculty Director Joel Brockner talks about the program experience.

People devoted to working in the nonprofit sector often require specialized professional knowledge and skills, but may not have received training in leadership and management. Managers, in particular, are in the unique position of overseeing others while also answering to their organization’s leadership.

The intensive six-day Developing Leaders Program addresses both of these challenges.

The program prepares nonprofit managers to support their organization’s mission by exposing them to key management concepts and providing tools to better navigate their position within the organization.

The program offers formal training in fundamental elements of strategic management and covers such critical skills as the planning and implementing of organizational change, negotiating effectively, and increasing one’s self-awareness.

Through lectures, simulations, small-group work, one hour of 1:1 coaching following a 360-degree evaluation, and peer discussions, participants integrate management fundamentals with real-world applications. The peer network created during the Developing Leaders Program becomes an invaluable source of continued support.
