As an executive leading the charge in your organization, you harness the power and the potential to do great things. At times though, it can become a lonely job as we easily forget how important it is to interact with others around us. Recent studies have noted that loneliness has become an under-diagnosed epidemic among rising CEOs. Top executives have reported feeling a sense of isolation that can potentially hinder their ability to do their jobs.
NSWM’s Executive Circle Program brings together a group of senior-level managers and executives who are interested in the opportunity to collaborate and share experiences in a safe space with other human services leaders from around the world.
The Executive Circle meets bimonthly via Zoom to:
- Connect nonprofit managers and executives to brainstorm about like challenges and achievements.
- Build a mutually supportive network of colleagues who can enhance each other’s capabilities.
- Create partnerships and share ideas with other top managers and executives in the profession.
“The Executive Circle is a necessary and powerful tool for Social Work Managers and one I recommend for anyone wanting peer support and true professional development. It is well worth the investment of time and energy.”
