Leadership Circle for Executive Directors
Beginning September 10th: Candid is hosting a virtual leadership circle for executive directors:
“The Leadership Circle for Executive Directors is a weekly five-part peer learning group for executive directors of small nonprofit organizations to share challenges and strategies for personal and organizational success. In an informal, virtual roundtable format, cohort members will have an opportunity to share their insights, gain practical solutions, and alleviate on-the-job isolation or stress. The Leadership Circle is a safe space for executive directors to lean on one another for encouragement, ideas, and support.
We’ve shifted our format to fully virtual sessions in which members can more easily participate remotely. These sessions aim to be as interactive and peer-driven as ever, and we will offer opportunities for members to connect fully as a larger group, in smaller breakout sessions together, as well as amongst themselves in between official meetings.
Each session will be facilitated by Candid and include occasional guest speakers to share their expertise, as well as cohort members to share their own experiences and questions. There will also be an array of online learning content for further professional development between meetings. Topics from past sessions include:
- Work/Life Balance
- Building Better Board Relations
- Making Time for Fundraising
- Clarifying Your Theory of Change
- Collaborating with Others for Greater Impact
- Succession Planning
The peer circle will meet virtually on the following Fridays from 11:00am – 1:00pm CT: September 10, 2021; September 17, 2021, September 24, 2021, October 1, 2021, and October 8, 2021.”
