Master Juggler Series: Executive Institute

Coming in 2019!
Leadership development for foundation executives

Executive leaders at small-staffed foundations play a unique role in philanthropy. You are committed to serving your foundation, your board, and your community. You make it a priority to leverage the most from your time and money. And you often put others first, not always getting around to investing in yourself and your professional development.

With you in mind, we developed the Master Juggler Executive Institute, a carefully crafted 6-month program for those in the most senior staff role at their foundations.

Program Highlights

  • A unique opportunity for executive directors/CEOs and the foundations they serve, combining world-class training, peer learning, and executive coaching
  • Wisdom from seasoned experts in leadership, organizational development, and philanthropy, plus the collective experience of fellow foundation executives.
  • A small cohort that supports deep connections, real accountability, and a personalized learning experience for each participant.

Applications for the 2019 program will open in the Fall of 2018

Core Components

Leadership Intensives
The program includes two dynamic in-person trainings led by outstanding faculty. They feature 25+ hours of instruction, practical application, powerful collegial connections, and opportunities to test new skills.

Peer Coaching
Leading a small-staffed foundation requires the support, insight, and creativity that comes from authentic engagement with others who understand your work. You’ll be matched with a select group of peer executives to provide you with support and motivation via monthly coaching sessions and ongoing conversations.

Customized Learning
Whether you’re in your first year on the job or celebrating your 20th anniversary, each leadership situation is unique. You’ll work with faculty and peers to identify your priorities for growth and develop a personal learning agenda to take your leadership to the next level in the next year.

Support & Resources
You won’t go it alone. You will engage with your peers through executive coaching circles, conference calls, and online discussions. Our seasoned faculty and staff will provide ongoing support and connect you with resources from Exponent Philanthropy and the field to help you fulfill your personal learning agenda.
