Future leaders focused on obtaining top transnational NGO leadership positions and executives building a succession plan for their organization carefully consider what is necessary to make a successful leadership “leap”. The Transnational NGO Leadership
Institute welcomes global NGO professionals to upstate New York, USA, for a five-day, intensive and interdisciplinary program to gain skills to make this leadership “leap.”
What are the leadership “leaps”?
The program will address the following issues critical to transnational NGO leaders who wish to make the 'leap' to top leadership:
1. Leading in a Complex Context: the impact of personal/individual leadership styles; strategic leadership behavior choices; leadership vs. management; the broader landscape of actors and issues2. Leading and Managing Organizational Change:
leading and managing macro as well as micro level organizational change; organizational design; board leadership; diversity and inclusion strategies3. Collaboration and Crisis: communication, collaborative arrangements and
leadership; leadership in crisis; leadership and stress4. Politics and Power Relationships: persuasion, symbolic leadership and advocacy5. Strategic Decision-Making and Performance Management: resource
planning, allocation and management
Applications open on December 1st, 2018. Please stay tuned for further announcements of program details.
