Volunteer Manitoba's Emerging Leaders Program

Leadership Skills for Emerging Non-Profit Leaders

The non-profit sector is complex, dynamic and multi-faceted, and the future will bring significant change. Leaders need to be prepared for the new environment and pressures with an informed and strengthened competency foundation. This program focuses on developing the seven key leadership competencies that will best prepare you and your non-profit to face these upcoming challenges.

An Emerging Leaders Program Certificate will be issued upon completion of the following 3 courses:

  • Leading From Within (3 days)
    Take the next steps to pursue or advance your management career by learning about the knowledge and skills required to excel as a leader in your organization. If you want to rise through the ranks of your organization into management, or if you want to become more effective in your current leadership role, you'll need to cultivate a specialized set of skills and a particular mindset that is needed in today's dynamic non-profit sector.
