The Transnational NGO Leadership Institute welcomes global NGO professionals to a five-day, intensive and interdisciplinary program to gain skills to make their next leadership “leap”. The Institute is hosted by the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, America’s highest rated graduate school of public affairs (US News and World Report, 2013). Maxwell has been hosting executive leadership programming for global public and nonprofit/NGO leaders since 1964.
What are the leadership “leaps”?
The program will address the following issues critical to transnational NGO leaders at the second tier of responsibility who wish to make the 'leap' to top leadership:
Leading in a Complex Context: the impact of your individual leadership styles; strategic leadership behavior choices that increase your effectiveness; leadership vs. management; the broader landscape of actors and issues; your personal preparation for making the next ‘leadership leap’
Leading and Managing Organizational Change: leading dramatic useful change, and managing organizational change processes; organizational design; leading boards; organizational culture change
Collaboration and Crisis: the leader as communicator, team facilitator and mentor; collaborative leadership skills; leadership in crisis situations; leadership and stress
