A nonprofit’s employees are one of its greatest assets, so investing in their development not only strengthens them in their various roles, but also shows an active interest in their professional growth.
One of the premier leadership development organizations in the area is the Nonprofit Leadership Institute of Greater Cincinnati (NLIGC.) NLIGC is a collaboration between OneSource Center for Nonprofit Excellence and Talbert House, offering extended leadership development opportunities for the region’s nonprofit leaders. NLIGC provides agencies with access to high-quality, affordable leadership education and professional development through all career stages — from entry level to the executive suite. Nearly 140 agencies have benefited from this in-depth training.
Three programs are available to nonprofits through NLIGC:
- The EXCEL program is a premier nine-month leadership development and skills training program for nonprofit executive directors and high-level managers. EXCEL was designed to enrich the management capabilities of those individuals inspired to lead nonprofit organizations in the Greater Cincinnati region. A highly regarded offering of the program is the pairing of an executive coach with each participant in the program to facilitate even greater growth through the training. Applications are being accepted now for a September 2019 start.
- ADVANCE focuses on strengthening and developing management and leadership skills of middle managers through its six-week program. Key class components include understanding and application of Emotional Intelligence (EI) and Social Intelligence (SI) concepts; learning conflict management styles and effective communication techniques plus understanding the basics of managing others. A session is currently in session, and the next class begins in the fall.
- LEARN – “Everybody Leads” is a three-month foundational leadership and skills development program for those looking to improve their general leadership skills. LEARN is designed to address the need for all employees to be skilled in self-awareness and in the interpersonal aspects of leadership. A session is currently in session, and the next session begins in the fall.
