GROW YOUR ORGANIZATION, GROW YOURSELF
You’re passionate about what you do. You’re an expert in your field. Your people trust you to lead them.
If only that were enough. You’ve got to keep up with constant, rapid changes that challenge your organization’s capacity and growth—stakeholder demands, funding shifts, staff turnover, as well as shifting local, global, and socioeconomic forces.
These myriad day-to-day challenges can lead even the best leader to lose sight of the big picture; feel disconnected from what motivated you to start doing your work in the first place.
In order to fulfill your purpose—and your organization’s mission—you need more than passion and a vision. You even need more than the business acumen. You need the leadership prowess and personal management skills that have helped the most successful executives thrive and their businesses grow.

A Unique Approach
Many courses bring students together for a day or a week then send them straight back into the noise of daily life only to see their newfound knowledge and best intentions fade away. Students are inspired, but inspiration is not enough.
Our schedule provides opportunity for you to implement your new skills out in the real world, and to come back to process, together, what’s been learned. You’ll develop a deep sense of community with your cohort of like-minded leaders, and continue to learn from each other long after the course has ended.
In addition to group interactions, each participant will have the opportunity for a one-to-one coaching session with Glenn to discuss their personal concerns, goals, and obstacles.
