Develop Leaders

Develop Leaders

We equip people with the skills, knowledge, and support
to powerfully engage in the process of leadership.

Our Approach

We design and deliver intensive cohort leadership development programs like HIVE and Next Generation Leaders of Color Inland Region. These programs range in length from three months to multi-year, depending on the project.

They all combine a set of core methodologies, including teaching, peer learning, coaching, and physical practice. To work at this depth, we partner with foundations who share our commitment to social change and to leadership development.

At CompassPoint, we don’t focus on a single leadership development model; instead, we blend our own content and the best content of others to craft programs that are responsive to particular communities, fields, and movements.
