Laridae Learning: Professional Development for Non-Profits

Laridae offers Learning through a variety of formats. With engaging, cohort-based courses, our experienced facilitators address some of the biggest leadership and management challenges faced by non-profits today. 

Our Leadership Development Program

For current and aspiring non-profit executives, board members and senior leaders

Are you new to your leadership role or an experienced leader looking to “level up” with current best practices in the non-profit sector?

Join your peers in our Leadership Development Program, an engaging and interactive six-month program designed to deliver the skills you need to drive change and transform culture. 

Graduate with practical know-how that will help you avoid common but costly missteps and guide your organizations with newfound confidence and clarity.

Our Management Training Program

For current and aspiring non-profit supervisors and managers 

You chose a career in the non-profit sector because you wanted to help people. You worked hard and made a difference. Now you’re a manager and you’re facing a brand-new set of responsibilities. You are doing your best, but at times, it’s overwhelming. 

Managers need a whole new set of tools to do their job well. We aren’t born with them, and it’s hard to learn them on the job.

Find community in a cohort of your peers for a six-month progression through the fundamentals of management. Gain the essential skills and tools you need to thrive in your job.

Governance Training

For Non-Profit Executive Directors and Board Members

Today’s non-profits are navigating an increasingly complex world. Strong governance at the board level is critical to their success.

Whether board members need help understanding the fundamentals of good governance, building expertise, strengthening partnerships, or planning for the future, ongoing training can help.

Laridae offers a bespoke program tailored to the specific needs of your board. Areas we typically cover include: roles and responsibilities of volunteer board members, the healthy tension between senior leaders and the board, and current best practices in board operations. We will also dig into the issues having the greatest impact on your board’s current effectiveness. You’ll leave with tangible strategies you can use today.

Community Learning Events

For anyone seeking to expand their skill set in the context of non-profit organizations

Three-Hour Deep Dives: Take a three-hour deep dive into a topic of immediate relevance to non-profit managers and leaders. Created in the format of our Leadership Development and Management Training learning modules, Deep Dives make excellent continuous learning opportunities for graduates of these programs, or as stand-alone courses to address immediate need.

One-Hour Booster Workshops: Roll up your sleeves for a one-hour, hands-on session to practice a specific skill learned in a Deep Dive learning module. Designed to be useful to ad-hoc participants and Deep Dive attendees as well, you’ll leave with knowledge you can use instantly upon return to work.
