Lead & Develop Leaders
Leadership is action, not position.
Recognizing the critical role leaders play in creating a vibrant and connected region, Rotary Charities sees its role in two ways: modeling leadership in our own organization and the region, and helping to develop current and future leaders.
We lead regionally and statewide as partners and funders: participating in funder affinity groups, sitting on the boards of statewide organizations, and leading by example in our communities.
Through NorthSky, Rotary Charities is committed to providing high impact professional development opportunities to current and emerging leaders, offering services that include Leadership Coaching, a Peer Learning Circle, and Professional Development Workshop Series. As we move forward with our strategic direction, we are interested in partnering with others to survey leadership development programs available in our region, identify promising practices, and collaborating to develop new programs where there are identified needs.
How we’re leading:
- The Grand Vision
- Boardman River Prosperity Plan
- Grand Traverse Regional Funders – group of funders from around northwest Michigan that share information
- Council of Michigan Foundations – board leadership
- Michigan Land Use Funders – affinity group of environmental and land use funders from across the state
- Great Lakes Funders – basin-wide, bi-national group of funders that share information and collaborate around Great Lakes issues
- Michigan Community Service Commission
