The Leadership Institute
Effective leadership has far reaching effects and can determine the longevity and health of an organization, making the difference between a good organization and a great organization! Research has demonstrated that investments in leadership development produce tangible benefits including higher achievement of growth goals, lower operating costs, greater stability, and increased mission impact for the organization.
The Leadership Institute offered through United Way of Alamance County and Impact Alamance aims to provide nonprofit and government directors with essential leadership skills to enhance their development and advance the mission of their organizations. The program provides a solid foundation of leadership essentials through classroom training, individual development plans, self-discovery, practical application, and personal coaching.
The Institute will be facilitated by Linda Smith, Splash Performance and Lisa Withers, Proactive Consulting. Lisa and Linda each have over 20 years of experience in leadership development and have worked with various business, healthcare, and nonprofit organizations.
Since 2016, 38 organizations and 62 leaders have participated in Leadership Institute!
