Becoming an Executive Director is hard!
The role can be scary, stressful, and really hard.
There's no instruction manual. You might worry, "What If I fail?" or “What if I’m not prepared?” or worse, “What if I mess things up?”
In my 20s, I was a full-time civil rights activist working for a brilliant guy. He was my boss, best friend, and mentor. But, he was not the best at being an Executive Director.
Meetings were a mess. No one had job descriptions. Accountability was lacking. It was frustrating.
It turns out, I learned a lot about how to run an organization by watching it be done wrong.
So, when I got my first Executive Director job, I didn’t want to make the same mistakes.
I wanted to excel at management and leadership, not just activism. I was terrified that I wasn’t ready or that I would mess things up.
Worse than that, I had terrible imposter syndrome. Did I have the skills? The temperament? The right training?
I wish there had been a quick primer or course for me back then. That’s why I am committed to making sure other emerging leaders have what I didn’t: a carefully crafted and framed body of wisdom and skills to prepare people for a really important job. There is no manual or training when you arrive as an ED. This course fixes that.
After my class, I promise you it won’t be sink or swim. Instead, you’ll soar.
You’ll impress your board, your staff, your stakeholders, and even yourself. And, you can put this course on your resume.
