In the new year, four new cohorts of Learning Groups began to meet. Forty-Five nonprofit leaders from throughout San Diego and Orange Counties are participating and represent various subsectors of the nonprofit landscape, including education, the environment, health, social service, literacy, arts, technology, sports and exercise, diplomacy and international relations, and faith based charity. The four groups will continue to meet monthly through June 2017.
Each monthly curriculum module incorporates group problem solving activities as well as discussion on state-of-the-art leadership and management research grounded though the practitioner’s lens. These topics address common issues among nonprofits, such as:
Problem Solving, Leadership and Management, Developing Leaders, Managing Up and Team Building, Stages of Nonprofit Growth and Development, Conflict Resolution and Persuasion, Board Development, Time Management and Delegation, Strategic Planning, and Empowerment.
The Learning Group program has be filled to capacity since its inception in 1994. Applications for the next cohort will be accepted beginning in September 2017 and are available on our website. The next cohort will begin meeting in January 2018.
