As a non-profit executive, have you ever asked yourself:

Is there a fast track to wisdom?

I want to be sharper, quicker and more confident in the choices I make and the directions I head.

Who can I talk to that “gets it” about the uniqueness (or is it the peculiarity) of non-profit leadership?

I want to talk with people who understand what I sense on a daily and yearly basis.

Where can I go to learn what I need to know when I need to know it?

I want to grow in areas that will make a difference in my life and my work; I need something more specific than some institution’s predetermined curriculum or agenda.

Who can I trust, really trust?

I want to be able to ask questions without risk; I want to dig into myself and my work without worrying about what people think of me; I want to tell the whole story and get genuine feedback and input.

Who pushes me to my potential as a leader, as a human being?

I’ve got more to offer than I currently show; I want to be challenged, I want to be pushed, I want to be accountable to something.
