Leading From Within equips our community leaders with resources that enable them to continue learning and developing in an ever-expanding social sector. This page provides tools and information that will support our growing alumni programs, invite new and adaptive offerings, and foster a vibrant learning community.

Adaptive Offerings

Through a facilitated process, Leading From Within is seeking to support its leaders in providing peer offerings in collaboration and to learn from each offering. In adapting based on what we learn, Leading From Within hopes to better meet the needs of our leaders, and to further clarify the most powerful ways to serve and activate our Leading From Within network. Learn more on how to participate and offer your ideas.
