Leading Edge will train senior teams from four organizations in the Network of Jewish Human Service Agencies
Collaboration, communication, and group dynamics are the focus for learners in this special cohort of the Leading Teams program.
On March 14, senior teams from four organizations will begin a three-month shared learning journey about how a nonprofit’s senior leadership team can lead together as one.
The program, Leading Teams, by Leading Edge, brings senior leadership teams from multiple organizations together to elevate how top leadership teams collaborate and achieve their missions. “Leadership isn’t just about the top job,” says Dena Farber Schoenfeld, Chief Programs Officer at Leading Edge. “This layer of leadership—one rung below the CEO—is essential to organizational success. And that’s not just about having great individuals in those roles, it’s about helping those great individuals combine together into a team that’s more than the sum of its members.”
“The Network's member agencies provide a vast array of vital services, and they do so with quality and care,” said Reuben D. Rotman, President & CEO of the Network, “but since what our agencies do is so important, nobody can afford to rest on their laurels. They have to keep improving, for the sake of everyone depending on them. The Leading Teams experience will help participating agencies to do just that.”
This cohort of Leading Teams is being conducted in partnership with the Network of Jewish Human Service Agencies, funded by The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, and all four organizations in the cohort are members of the Network.
The organizations participating in this cohort of Leading Teams are:
● Goodman Jewish Family Services of Broward County
● Jewish Family & Career Services of Louisville
● Jewish Family Services of Columbus
● Jewish Family Services of Greenwich
Teams from all four organizations will join together with the whole cohort for masterclasses and skills sessions. Each organization’s team will also meet separately with its own senior advisor who specializes in working with executive teams.
