Practical LeadershipThis session offers a dynamic curriculum for supervisors and leaders responsible for teams, units, departments or entire organizations. The course covers both the intangible components of how to develop and cultivate shared leadership among team members and the concrete tools you can use to get the maximum results with your team.

Curriculum Areas:

  • Introduction to social and system intelligence
  • Cultivating trust among team members
  • Role clarification
  • How to air and resolve conflicts within the team
  • Co-creating effective team agreements

Learning Outcomes:

  • Increase understanding of the team as a separate entity that needs care and attention
  • Become equipped in key dimensions of cultivating team trust (such as creating psychological safety, fostering openness, etc) and learn tools for improving trust dimensions
  • Acquire methods for creating shared leadership within teams
  • Learn processes for clarifying and adapting roles within the team
  • Ideas and solutions tailored to specific questions from participants

Note: We also strongly recommend you take Practical Leadership 1.0: Supervising for Employee Engagement. While no material is repeated between the two courses, the curriculum of Practical Leadership 1.0 and 2.0 complements each other.

  • LEAD 11: Nonprofit leaders should continually develop the skills, knowledge and abilities of others at all levels of the organization to take on greater responsibility for carrying out the organization’s mission and engaging community members.
