Emerging Nonprofit Leaders Hit the Ground Running

Our congratulations to the 15 fellows who completed the inagural year of Hawai'i Emerging Leaders Program (HELP), sponsored by the Hawai'i Community Foundation.

Within weeks of completing HELP, Blair Collis, on of these emerging leaders, was selected as CEO of the Bishop Museum in Honolulu. Blair had served as Chief Operating Officer of the Museum prior to being tapped by the board to lead the organization.

La Piana Consulting is proud of the latest graduates and thrilled to be involved in developing this next generation of nonprofit leaders.

Leadership Development: What You Need and How You Get There

In the last 9 years, La Piana Consulting has had the opportunity to develop and facilitate long-term leadership development programs for senior and emerging leaders in the nonprofit sector. We have worked closely with our foundation clients to identify the most important and powerful elements of successful leadership development programs.

Leadership requires more than the confidence to stand up and offer to lead. In fact, there are three skill areas that must be built or honed for someone to truly claim the mantle of leadership. 

1. Self-Awareness. You must have an understanding and appreciation of who you are as a person, and how you manage yourself.
