The cornerstone of the Fieldstone Leadership Network, Learning Groups are a facilitated six-month program to learn nonprofit management models while working through specific leadership challenges of each member. Learning groups provide a unique and confidential environment which allows leaders to explore their personal leadership style and develop trusted relationships with fellow nonprofit leaders from a variety of cross sector of the nonprofit community. A professional facilitator with deep experience in the nonprofit sector, guides the group using a carefully crafted curriculum to address the most relevant and pressing needs of social sector leaders today. Our 2017 survey results indicate that, after participating in the Learning Group, 95% rate themselves with strong or very strong professional leadership skills, 98% believe they have increased the capacity of their organization and 91% feel strongly that they now have a trusted network of colleagues.
Groups are offered for CEOs and Executive Directors (reporting to a board of directors) and for senior leadership team members (reporting to the CEO/ED of the organization). Groups meet once a month in the local Fieldstone office from 9 am to 4 pm January through June each year.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2018 programs. Two groups, one Executive and one Nonprofit Leaders, will be hosted in each office, for a total of 4 groups. Survey information indicates that 93% of past participants said they would recommend the group experience to their peers. This has proven to be true as Learning Groups fill quickly each year. Anyone interested in joining us for this leadership learning opportunity is encouraged to apply as soon as possible. To date, over 1,100 nonprofit leaders have participated in a Fieldstone Learning Group.
