We create exceptional learning experiences that increase participants’ skills and prepare them to lead improvements in organizational practice.

Our Approach

Our senior practice members and key partners design and deliver 150 public classes each year. Our core content includes supervision and coaching skills, financial literacy, strategy development, and effective board service, among other subjects. We also bring our core classes to organizations so that their staff and board teams can learn together at their own site and in their own context.


What distinguishes our approach to teaching?

Our practice members are passionate about teaching.

They continuously refine curricula—incorporating participant feedback as well as their own learning from other aspects of our work into new class designs.

Our classes are highly interactive so that participants have a chance to practice new skills, learn from one another, and prepare to bring knowledge back into their organizations thoughtfully and effectively.

And, our classes are honest and fun. Our teachers are all experienced nonprofit leaders who use their own successes and failures to illustrate key ideas, often with a humorous touch. We are always excited to stay in dialogue with class participants and to guide them in further professional development as their needs evolve.

“I really enjoyed the training and admire how well aligned the CP staff appear with the approach and purpose of preparing nonprofit staff. It is good to know that it is with a strong sense of purpose that CP staff is impacting the nonprofit sector.”
