CRE Leadership Caucus – Developing an adaptive and effective approach to leading in a dynamic environment
This is an uncertain time. CRE can help.
CRE’s Leadership Caucus is a renowned and well-respected leadership development program started in 2005. Since its inception, we’ve trained hundreds of nonprofit leaders throughout New York City. The Caucus provides early-career executive directors and qualified senior managers with a unique leadership development opportunity.
Right now, with the multiple crises of COVID-19, racial injustice, a shrinking economy, and unemployment impacting communities, leaders find themselves trying to understand and address challenging situations, uncertain outlooks, and difficult decisions. At CRE, we know that leaders need immediate, real-time support as they navigate through this unprecedented time. The Leadership Caucus is designed to help leaders and managers get through these crises.
Over seven months, you will participate in pre-scheduled sessions (sessions are shown in calendar) with other nonprofit leaders designed to enhance the awareness of your leadership style and identity, and strengthen your overall leadership capabilities. The program’s design includes experiential workshop-style sessions—Issue Discussions—with senior members of CRE’s consulting staff as well as peer-learning sessions—Action Learning—through which you learn to coach and support one another on challenges you identify as priorities. You will also receive 360° feedback from colleagues at your organization, along with individual coaching sessions. The program provides insights and perspective on key leadership questions and gives you the knowledge, practice, and support you need to move your organization forward and to thrive as a leader managing through crises.
This program will help you:
- Establish a clear vision for your role as a leader in creating organizational alignment and strategy
- Develop strategies for managing talent and shaping your organization’s culture
- Explore how your identity influences leading and managing across difference
- Understand and manage risks, and leverage innovation and opportunity
- Create and communicate compelling organizational cases
- Explore partnerships and collaborate for impact
All Leadership Caucus sessions will be virtual. We require that participants have their video cameras on for all of the Leadership Caucus sessions to build strong connections with each other and engage in meaningful discussions.
The cost of the program per participant is $7,000 and is generously funded by DYCD and is offered at no cost to those who are accepted.
