“The single biggest way to impact an organization is to focus on leadership development. There is almost no limit to the potential of an organization that recruits good people, raises them up as leaders and continually develops them.” – John C. Maxwell


We believe in the power of leaders to guide us in solving thorny problems and seize big opportunities. But the day-to-day of running a nonprofit or philanthropic organization or program as a staff member or volunteer can tether a leader’s attention to just the urgent rather than the long term important goals and responsibilities.

Invest in yourself and your mission with Greater Good Greenville’s 2024 series, Mission-Driven Leadership, generously sponsored by United Way of Greenville County. These 2.5 hour sessions will give you the time and space for deep work to hone your leadership skills and work on long term sustainability of your organization. 

In 2023, our leadership and nonprofit skills programming received an average 4.9 out of 5 star rating. Participants loved our leadership sessions because they gave perspective to participants, allowing them to step out of the day-to-day to look at the big picture. We’ve built on that to create a menu of programs for leaders of all levels in 2024.

These sessions are made affordable thanks to generous support from the United Way of Greenville County, and early bird pricing and scholarships are available.
