Join a Leaders Circle
“Being a new ED, my Leaders Circle was key to resilience-building. My circle members all have different levels of experience – they share their personal experiences and really, can pull me off the ceiling.” – Leaders Circle participant
Leaders Circles® are a proven way to develop leadership strengths. Our Leaders Circles program accommodates the needs of both emerging and C-suite leaders. Circles create the environment that allows you to confidentially discuss challenges and ideas, test ideas before “taking them public,” identify solutions to challenging situations, and network with others who face similar issues.
Circles are comprised of 5-7 leaders at similar points on their leadership journeys who commit to participate for one year. Circles meet once monthly during the work day, for up to three hours. A trained, experienced coach works with each group.
