Leadership training program grooms nonprofit leaders

Executive Service Corps of Cincinnati (ESCC) and Talbert House are continuing their partnership this year in offering a nine-month leadership and skills development training program, The Executive Curriculum for Emerging Leaders (EXCEL).

EXCEL provides local nonprofit organizations access to affordable leadership education and professional development. The program is targeted at executive directors and senior staff management of nonprofit organizations in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area.

The full-day workshops this year, which run October 2014 through May 2015, focus on networking, board development, fundraising, branding and marketing, as well as one-on-one coaching for each individual, says Darlyne Koretos, director of public relations.

The total cost for the program, including required reference materials, is $1,100. Funding comes from the United Way of Greater Cincinnati, Duke Energy Foundation and the Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation

The EXCEL program aims to help nonprofit leaders to become more efficient and develop the skills needed to focus on fulfilling their mission.

“It’s gratifying to be able to help organizations that don’t have the money or resources,” Koretos says. “They have a passion for their mission and what they do, but they don’t have the business skills to do it.”
