Investing in Future Leaders

A 12-week program for executive teams seeking to identify future leadership needs and create powerful, job-embedded development plans for their direct reports.

Nurture the Talent You Need
to Deliver on Your Strategic Vision

Nonprofit leaders recognize the importance of talent to achieving their mission. But many are far less confident about how to develop that talent.

The Investing in Future Leaders program is designed to address that gap.

How ready are your managers to execute on your strategy?

Talented leaders are critical to nonprofit organizations; but truly understanding how to develop people is complex. In the Investing in Future Leaders program, your executive team will put in place the job-embedded development plans necessary to ensure your organization has the leaders it needs when it needs them.

What Executives Say

"We are light years ahead of where we were before we started the program. Part of that is certainly a function of the curriculum that Bridgespan put together. It's also a function of the time we were able to invest through the program and getting to know one another and better understanding our shared work together."
