Developing and retaining talent is a persistent challenge almost all nonprofit leaders face. ​
Luckily, with a few simple practices, nonprofits and NGOs can turn a talent-development process into an employee retention strategy, a leadership development tool, and a step toward a more-inclusive workforce—all at the same time.​
Join this webinar to get started on your leadership development goals:​

  • Learn a practical, powerful way of building skills and capabilities grounded in competencies and the 70/20/10 approach (which is based on research by The Center for Creative Leadership)
  • Discover how to embed this approach into your organization’s operations to help you transform the culture of your organization, drive professional growth for a more diverse set of leaders, and meet your future leadership needs​
  • Hear from nonprofit leaders who have gone through the process and designing and implementing their own leadership development systems
The work of investing in future leaders is vital to most organizations’ futures and the missions they pursue. At its best, this investment supports a virtuous cycle—people of all backgrounds become better at their jobs, they are more likely to stay with their organization when they see and experience growth, and organizations with great talent are able make larger strides in advancing their mission. ​
