Connect, Engage, and Grow with Leadership Circles

Establish a network of trusted peers to support you in your nonprofit leadership journey.

Leadership circles help you navigate the challenges and complexity of the nonprofit sector by connecting you with a network of peers facing many of the same issues and concerns.  With the guidance of an experienced facilitator, Leadership Circles provide participants a confidential environment where they can engage in peer coaching, develop leadership skills, and overcome obstacles by engaging in thoughtful problem solving.

Leadership Circles are for those who:

  • Want to develop a network of nonprofit leaders.
  • Desire active engagement with peers.
  • Want practical learning while processing real world, complex problems.
  • Seek to learn within a peer coaching environment.
  • Value a confidential space to explore strategic direction.

Circles are open to CEO/Executive Directors and Development Directors/Chief Development Officers.  The Leadership Circles are held monthly from September 2021-May 2022 for 2 hours.  There are Circles available at both our Dallas and Fort Worth offices.

Participation in Leadership Circles is by application only.  Applications are due Friday, July 16.

“The Leadership Circle provided me with a group of like-minded peers, who encouraged me through multiple issues over the last year. This type of group processing was extremely helpful in getting to the root of various work-related problems. I am grateful for the individuals in my Circle and their coaching over the last year.”
