Carolina Leadership Seminars are designed to strengthen the abilities of dedicated executive directors as well as emerging leaders from nonprofits across South Carolina.
Participants will engage in a series of candid and confidential discussions with peers regarding their organization’s current performance and their personal leadership challenges. Our goal is for participants to walk away from each session with practical tools and actionable insights.
Charles Weathers and The Weathers Group will design and lead all seminars. Charles is a nationally known speaker, writer and consultant who is a recognized expert on nonprofit leadership, organizational effectiveness and performance improvement. He and his team will provide creative, interactive learning opportunities for participants to address current organizational and leadership challenges in a confidential, open-dialogue learning environment.
To encourage support, applicants will be asked to provide an endorsement or nomination from a foundation involved in their organization. Foundations may also provide scholarship support for participants to encourage participation and defray costs.
Please note that due to limited seating, a selection process will be used to ensure class representation of diverse organizational types, backgrounds, and regions served.
All sessions will be held:
