Informational Lunch – Nonprofit Leadership Advancement Program

May 7, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Please join us for a virtual lunch session to learn about BVU’s Nonprofit Leadership Advancement Program (NLAP). This 5-day series over 5 months is designed to be insightful, challenging, and stimulating for nonprofit leaders. It provides an opportunity for nonprofit chief executives or those growing into a leadership role to continue to develop as a leader in the short term and the future.

Our partner is Ratliff & Taylor, a full-service talent management firm. Jennifer Cohen and Kyla Schneider facilitate the first four sessions and will describe its components of emotional intelligence, effective communications, team building, and strategic thinking/planning, as well as the two confidential assessments that are completed by each participant, and the optional pairing with an executive coach. Elizabeth Voudouris, BVU President, facilitates the fifth session on effective leadership with the board.

Past participants will describe the impact of NLAP on their leadership development and specifics on how they adapted the content to their leadership style.
