Advanced Executive Lab

Lab Outline

Embrace the challenges and opportunities of the executive director role. Feel empowered to excel in both your day-to-day responsibilities and the strategic leadership of your organization.

The intense cohort program includes seven virtual sessions. During the classroom sessions, faculty members bring theory and best practice to life through activities, discussion, and peer learning. The learning doesn’t stop in the classroom though! Applying and reflecting on the concepts explored in class is a key step in elevating your leadership practice.

Suggested participants: Executive directors and roles of a similar nature that are responsible for leading a non-profit organization and have been in the role for at least 1 year.

Important note! If you are a new executive director, our Executive Director 101 lab may be a better fit for you.​
