CEO Onboarding Program

A first-of-its-kind leadership development program for new top executives leading Jewish nonprofits.


The Leading Edge CEO Onboarding Program was a cohort-based leadership development program for CEOs who have served in their role for under two years. In the program, new leaders lay the groundwork for organizational success and connect with a growing community of their peers. Participants worked directly with experts in leadership development and leaders and thinkers in the North American Jewish community to take their competencies — and their organizations — to the next level.

Program Highlights

The CEO Onboarding Program included professional development valued at over $25,000 per participant. The components of the program included:

  • Virtual learning sessions and in-person convenings with specialized opportunities to learn from and build connections with prominent national/local leaders in the North American Jewish community.
  • 25 hours of support from an experienced, accomplished executive coach
  • Training at the Center for Creative Leadership, a leadership development institution ranked among the world's “top 10 providers of executive education” by Bloomberg BusinessWeek and The Financial Times
  • A confidential 360-degree evaluation and other assessments designed to give CEOs the critical self-knowledge needed for professional improvement
  • A network of trusted peers with whom to share challenges and celebrate successes
Future Cohorts

We're evolving! Based on the lessons and building on the legacy of the CEO Onboarding Program, we're launching a new program to serve more executives, more frequently: Leading Executives.
