Level Up Your Leadership: How to Become the Leader Everyone Wants to Follow (In-person)

Carina Kleter

  • August 23, 2022
    8:30 am - 12:30 pm EST

So much has been written about leadership — what it is, what it isn’t, who it’s for and how to become a great leader. Are leaders born? Is leadership something we can learn?

This highly interactive session will focus on three essential principles of leadership to take yours to the next level: learning, growth, and reflection.

During this session, you will:

  • Examine how you think about leadership
  • Question who or what has informed your perceptions of leadership
  • Explore new and different ways to advance your leadership path
  • Deepen your understanding about the connection between leadership and authenticity, purpose, honesty, and humility
  • Chart a course for a new “leadership routine”
  • Have meaningful opportunities for reflection and discussion

Who should attend this session?

This session is for emerging leaders — professionals who have 10 years or less of work experience and are interested in how to level up by looking within to ask and answer deeper leadership questions.

Safety and Health Protocols for In-Person Classes

The safety and health of all visitors, students, trainers and staff is our top priority.

The Nonprofit Leadership Center is taking necessary precautions to ensure the safety of guests and participants for all in-person training sessions:

  • We are following all federal health and safety guidelines, as well as guidance from state and local governments. Depending on the community spread of COVID-19, this may include protocols such as wearing face coverings and social distancing. Registrants will receive an email from NLC one week prior to each in-person training session that outlines specific protocols to expect on the event day.
  • We are using enhanced protocols and practices to keep our Training Room healthy and safe.
  • Training Room capacity is limited to ensure proper distancing.
  • Any person who is feeling unwell or suspects they have been exposed to contagious illness is asked to refrain from attending in-person training events. If you are not feeling well on the day of your training or are aware of exposure (within the previous 10 days) to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, we ask that you cancel or reschedule your visit with us, whether or not you appear to be experiencing symptoms of illness. If you need to cancel for this reason, please notify us, and we will be happy to provide program credit equivalent to the registration fees already paid.

Please note: In-person training events are subject to be changed to virtual (via Zoom), rescheduled or canceled depending on current CDC guidelines and/or state and local government recommendations as the date of the training approaches. If such a change is required, registrants will be notified in advance.
