How Bridgespan’s Nonprofit Leadership Development Programs Provide a Structured Approach to Problem Solving

Leadership teams rarely have the time they need to address important management and strategic issues.  Bridgespan’s Leadership Accelerator programs provide the structure for your team to dig into your important goals and objectives, create a shared vision, and make critical decisions—together.

Within 18 weeks, you and your team will be able to confidently address issues that would otherwise go unresolved. Leadership Accelerator programs allow your team to define its starting place and engage when  ready, using an online platform that combines individual lessons with guided team activities. Each nonprofit leadership development program focuses on a core set of management questions, with practical deliverables that put proven tools to work immediately.

Achieving Strategic Clarity helps your team define its strategic priorities. During the program, you and your leadership team will align on the impact your organization seeks to achieve as well as the activities and priorities you believe will lead to that impact.

Investing in Future Leaders helps you create an inclusive, customized approach to talent and leadership development. During the program, your leadership team will put in place the job-embedded development plans necessary to ensure your organization has the leaders it needs now and in the future.

Strengthening the Executive Team helps your team align on the practices and behaviors that will improve its performance. During the program, you and your leadership team will identify the right priorities on which to focus, how to have better meetings, and how to work more effectively together.
