Combining a DIY approach with proven materials developed by our nonprofit consultants, these expert-guided working sessions set your team up for success.


Research shows that when you “learn by doing,” you better retain information and are prepared to take action on what you’ve learned.

Our hands-on intensive courses are designed to help your staff work through, and come away with, actionable results and tactics that have an immediate impact on your work.

Upcoming Team Intensives:



Attend expert-led, interactive courses that increase your capacity and confidence to lead effectively.
