In Spring of 2017, the American Express Leadership Academy at the Community Foundation of Broward will accept its third class of 44 of Broward’s most accomplished senior nonprofit leaders. The executive development program for nonprofit leaders has come to Broward for two years, thanks to a partnership between the Community Foundation of Broward and American Express. Participants will receive education and executive coaching provided by consultants from the Center for Creative Leadership. The Financial Times ranks these consultants above Harvard, Oxford and Wharton.  Simply-put, this is a world-class program right in your own back yard.

  • Top performing mid-level leaders with potential for advancement
Both tracks include structured facilitated sessions, developmental assessments, and executive coaching.
