2016 Fellowship: About The Program
Share |


 The 2016 Program draws extensively from DANA’s Standards for Excellence® Program and Creating the Future’s Catalytic  Thinking Model. The Program design team includes consultants experienced in leadership development, board governance,  organizational design, strategic planning, facilitation, and instructional design.

 The Program will be especially useful for nonprofit leaders who have:

  • A strategic planning initiative about to get underway

  • A new strategic initiative for long-term sustainability under consideration

  • The desire to significantly enhance Board engagement and performance

  • The need to develop the next generation of organizational and Board leadership


 CEOs and Board Chairs from up to 10 Delaware nonprofits will be selected to participate in the program. 

 Participants will be selected based on their willingness to commit themselves to a four month intensive learning and discovery  process, and on their readiness to advance their organization’s leadership capacity. An extended program is offered for those who desire deeper application and coaching in the Catalytic Thinking model.


 Key Features & Benefits

  The 2016 Fellowship Program will be customized to the needs of each participating Board Chair/CEO team and will feature.

Pre-fellowship interviews to understand the unique challenges and interests of your leadership team.

Four core learning sessions (one full-day workshop, three half-day face to face, or live-streaming learning sessions) to enable in-depth exploration of leadership and team-building concepts and practices.

Three extended optional sessions (three half-day sessions) for those who desire deeper application and coaching in the Catalytic Thinking model.

Time scheduled between individual learning sessions to enable application of these concepts and practices within your organization and with your Board.

Formal learning sessions to be supplemented, as needed, by one-on-one coaching for you and your partner.

Instruction and discussion to model the listening, thinking, and leadership concepts and practices, showing what the practices look like in action, and allowing you to experience the results firsthand.

  AND you will emerge from the Program as more confident, committed, connected, and effective leadership partner in your
  organizations and your community.
