More than ever, the social sector is in need of adaptive, courageous leadership.

Leading through a pandemic hasn’t been easy. Our organizations have weathered through financial uncertainty, difficult staffing decisions and conversations, and dramatic shifts in programming. And today, leaders continue to wade through the unique challenges of this time.

With over 43 years of field-building experience, CRE guides and equips nonprofit leaders during moments of great transition, uncertainty, and opportunity. Join our Leadership & Management Training Program, and gain tools & strategies to strengthen your leadership skills, your organization, and your community.

Program Overview

All three of our programs typically take place from December through June. Due to the pandemic, they will be held virtually via Zoom. They each offer 8 interactive, virtual sessions – including workshops, peer-to-peer learning, and one-on-one coaching. Through these learning sessions, you will deepen your understanding of your leadership style, identify how to harness it at the workplace, and ultimately propel your team forward.

Applications for each of the programs open in early October and close at the end of the month. From there, qualified applicants will be interviewed to determine their participation in the program. Accepted applicants will be announced in mid-November
