Strategic Leadership Essentials©  (SLE) is a unique leadership training program specifically designed to work with nonprofit executives to become stronger, more effective leaders. This highly affordable, interactive program integrates personal leadership approach with an organization's strategic direction and the communication strategies necessary to engage stakeholders and achieve greater impact.

It gives participants an opportunity to step back, reflect and take charge. The program comprises:

  •      Two-day intensive workshop
  •      Course workbook
  •      Two one-on-one personalized coaching sessions
  •      Exchange of best practices
  •      Training tailored to participants

Max. class size is 14 to encourage idea-sharing and on-going peer collaboration. To assure open conversation, only one person from each organization may attend per class. During the coaching sessions you have an opportunity to discuss your specific challenges and needs with course leaders Craig Snook and Jane Baxter Lynn (in-person or remotely via Skype or Zoom), developing practical ways to address them. 

Craig and Jane developed this program because they recognized that too often leadership development and strategic planning are taught in isolation and communications (positioning, messaging, branding, stakeholder outreach) is rarely, if ever, taught within the context of leading an organization. “What we want is for participants to achieve a change in perspective by focusing on the fundamentals, with ongoing accountability that will empower them to grow and succeed.  We see people leave re-energized, excited about the future, with different ways to approach things.”

JBL Strategies also provides customized board training and team building programs based on the SLE model.
