Trajectory Leadership Group

About the Trajectory Leadership Group

Banana Leaf lunch (1) TLG GROUP This one year leadership group engages executive directors of nonprofit organizations in a long-term, structured peer group to support, advise, and inspire their fellow leaders to manage their organizations more effectively and achieve their goals. Through participation in the group, leaders work together to find creative solutions to management and operational challenges. Regular meetings throughout the year foster the formation of  a confidential advisory board, support creative thinking, and offer a forum to find and solve problem collaboratively. In addition to providing participants with practical tools, we examine their challenges as an opportunity to have participants explore, on a larger level, how they lead.

The Trajectory Leadership Group is currently on hiatus but may be offered again in the upcoming year. For more information, contact (212) 924-6744 ext. 309 or email Lakimja Mattocks, Associate Director of Strategic Partnerships and Learning.

  • Increasing the leadership effectiveness of participants
