The Transformation Leadership Institute is a cohort based leadership development program with a mission is to serve community-based nonprofit/social sector leaders through a series of topical trainings, conversations, guest speaker insights, and team and community building exercises through a unique blend of group training and customized one-on-one strategic professional and personal coaching. TLI is designed for current and rising nonprofit Executive Directors and provides leadership tools required by high impact organizations.
TLI's is also committed to bringing together and standing alongside a group of leaders that reflects the rich diversity of the social sector. A principal component and guiding principle of the Transformation Leadership Institute is to create a dynamic, inclusive and safe environment for our leaders to learn from and share with one another.
After over 40 years of combined service as Executive Directors of City Year and Leadership Greater Washington, Jeff and Tim came to the realization that running a nonprofit was both fulfilling and exhilarating yet exhausting and sometimes lonely. Having both participated and led numerous leadership development programs, they decided the best way to serve their fellow nonprofit leaders was to create on organization that could fill the desire for both community amongst peers and the individual coaching to expand their leadership compass. Thus, TLI was born.
The TLI butterfly logo represents change, transformation, comfort, hope, and positivity. It is TLI's mission to represent that ideal in practice and instill those qualities in each leader who embarks on the TLI journey.
