Programme Overview

The nonprofit sector is leading the way in the development of its managers. Its leaders recognise that navigating these rapidly changing times requires innovation, entrepreneurialism and values-driven growth - all areas where the nonprofit excels.

To help us through the changing times ahead, our sector needs individualised, responsive and accessible training that recognises both the unique skills and the unique challenges within our sector: the diversity of staff and the diversity of experience; the diverse demands of job roles, the time pressures.

The Connected Leaders experience will help you lead, manage, inspire and innovate in these rapidly changing and increasingly challenging times. Reflection and self awareness is an essential part of a successful leader. Learn more on our insightful, meaningful and practical training.
