Training that makes a difference
LEAD training workshops are filled with tools, tips, approaches and frameworks to make you and your organisation more effective. But they're not simplistic.
Training content is informed by research and evaluation, and underpinned by principles of community-led development. We take the best of what’s happening in the global, Pacific and New Zealand third sectors, and distil it for your benefit. We also draw on our extensive experience of working and leading in not for profit organisations, as well as learning from our own development as The LEAD Centre.
Participating in a workshop gives you the opportunity to join a learning community of not for profit organisation leaders and managers like yourself. More importantly, it'll be transformative - giving you the ongoing skills, knowledge and confidence to lead and create change.
Our public training workshops are run in cities around the country
We also deliver bespoke training to your organisation -
drawing in the values, culture and complexities that are unique to you, your team and your community.
