Abstract: On March 19, 2003, members of the Leadership Learning Community (LLC) and Northern California Grantmakers (NCG) came together to explore a mutual interest in leadership development. Participants were Foundation staff and trustees, staff of local leadership development programs, and a few independent professionals working in the field of leadership. They brought to the session a diversity of perspectives on--and experiences with--the work of leadership. Objectives of the half day program were to enhance participants' understanding of important leadership capacities and skills; to explore a variety of approaches to strengthening leadership development through grantmaking; and to provide an opportunity for funders and practitioners to connect and think together about how to strengthen leadership development and social change in the nonprofit sector.
