exceptional leadership

Create impact and legacy for a better world

In the last 7 years, 150 leaders went through this course. Nearly all stated that this was the most important course in their career. Some called it a life-changing experience.


In today’s rapidly changing environment, civil society organizations need leaders who are not only visionary and strategic thinkers, but also those who create relationships across differences, foster leadership in others, and act collectively in response to change. Effective leaders are those who create a vision for the future, work well with a team, enable their team’s success, and demonstrate flexibility. Exceptional Leadership is, therefore, the key to lasting social change. 

Our Exceptional Leadership Masterclass was designed for civil society leaders like you to elevate your leadership to the next level - by reflecting on your current practice and inspiring you to go further.
