iLEAP Professional Course for Non-profit Leaders aims to promote and support the professional development of non-profit leaders and senior executives. Tapping on its unique translational and experiential approach, it is designed for participants from various sectors including the social and health services, community development, charities, education, the arts and environment.
Facilitated by both academic and subject-matter experts, the modules draw upon their rich and diverse experiences and capabilities. Sessions are conducted in collaboration with carefully selected community partner agencies at their respective service delivery locations. They will share their accounts of non-profit leadership, governance and operational excellence.
An excellent opportunity to network, learn and share your experiences with other people in Singapore 's social space and beyond.
This course is made possible through the participation of the Lien Centre for Social Innovation, Singapore Management University (SMU), community partner organizations and individuals with their diverse interdisciplinary resources.
Partnerships with community organizations to appreciate the benefits of best performance management practices and how other leaders address specific non-profit issues.
Reflect. Re-look. Rethink. Participants will learn to translate new research findings, insights and experiences into practical advances in non-profit management through critical reflections with the help of various learning tools such as conversations with sector thought leaders, open space technology and case analyses.
Throughout the duration of the course, participants will be guided in comparing their own non-profit management approaches against various case studies and to translate possible gaps into concrete strategies and action plans.
Participants will engage in self-learning prior to the start of each module. This will cover selected readings or analysis of specific cases (which will be sent out in advance), as well as resource materials about current non-profit management approaches and practices.
