Management and Leadership Certification for Non-profits at Argosy University, Twin Cities

"/argosyuniversityblog/image.axd?picture=%2f2017%2f12%2fTC+Management+Certificate+for+Non-Profits+NEW.png"

Two years ago, over lunch, Jill West, CEO of People Incorporated, and Dr. Karen Gulliver, Dept. Chair, Argosy University, Twin Cities Graduate School of Business and Management, were talking about what kept them both awake at night. Jill’s biggest fear was the same as for every non-profit, large or small. Departure, for any reason, of a senior leader could easily disrupt or derail an organization’s mission, or be the catalyst that vaporizes its vision. Non-profits tend to be mission-delivery focused to the point where they seldom think to groom or develop the next line of organizational leaders. Making matters more difficult was the fact that many managers were clinicians, loathed to take on administrative or senior leadership roles. Hands-on interaction with the core client base is why most people work in non-profits and what keeps their motors running.

What does it take to close that gap, because the subject of many subsequent conversations. Two years later, the two are offering a certificate in Non-profit Leadership and Management that is exceptional in scope and value. Covering the basics of management, participants also learn the fundamentals of leadership, take personal assessments on their strengths & potential, get confidential debriefs, coaching and start a personal leadership development plan. CEU credits are available for all participants.
