Developing Leaders

Developing Leaders

Our Approach

We design and deliver intensive cohort leadership development programs and bring leaders together in learning communities. These programs range in length from three months to multi-year, depending on the project. To work at depth, we often partner with foundations who share our commitment to social change and to leadership development.

These programs combine a set of core methodologies, including teaching, peer learning, coaching, and physical practice. While shelter-in-place orders are in effect, we are delivering all current programs online.
