Join Beth Kanter for a focus group on programming for emerging leaders!

We are excited to partner with Third Plateau Social Impact Strategies and Beth Kanter on the next generation “Emerging Leaders Playbook.”  The initiative, generously funded by the David and Lucille Packard Foundation, will relaunch this fall as an interactive web platform. As part of this effort, YNPN chapters and members will have a unique opportunity to receive facilitation and coaching support through an interactive leadership program in its early stages of development.

Chapter leaders are invited to join us for a virtual focus group to help shape this program and ensure it meets the needs of the intended audience -- YNPN members like you! Several prototypes are being tested, including a high-touch intensive six-month peer coaching program delivered face-to-face to a cohort of participating chapters, or a lighter touch model, which would deliver the content in shorter modules online to any YNPN member. Both delivery modules are based on train-the-trainer design in which participants are trained to deliver the content to their peers. We are looking for a group of YNPN chapters to form a cohort that gives us advice on how to provide you the tools needed to effectively adapt the program for your community.

The Playbook web platform will offer continuous content to support YNPN members and any emerging nonprofit leader participating in the leadership development program to improve their skills in areas such as: self-awareness and reflective practice; understanding leadership styles; self-management and mindfulness; facilitate listening; asking powerful questions; meeting facilitation and more.

We are thrilled to be able to offer this resource to our network and hope you’ll join us to learn more, share your perspectives, and find out how to shape the program to your chapter.

Contact Amber Cruz Mohring at if you have questions! Please make sure your program chair or the person who is most familiar with your programming is available to participate.  Update 10/24: This session has been scheduled for Wednesday, November 2nd at 8pm ET / 5pm PT.  Check the Training & Events Calendar for more information.
