Best Practices Leaders: Skill-Building Sessions
Six of the 12 sessions in the Certificate of Transformational Nonprofit Leadership program will be taught by CSL’s Best Practices Leaders. Given the state of the economy, we have included Skill-Building Sessions that will enable participants to boost revenues for their organizations, efficiently manage their organization’s finances, and not lose sight of their work-life balance in these challenging times.
These Best Practices Leaders for the Certificate of Transformational Nonprofit Leadership are the top trainers in the country in the areas of fundraising, social marketing, work-life balance and financial management.
