Chris Nicely, CEO of Next Step Network, a nonprofit supporter of affordable housing based in Louisville, KY, is one of 50 national leaders to have been chosen to participate in NeighborWorks Achieving Excellence Program, conducted at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard university.
Partly funded by the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, the program hones executive skills to enhance their organization’s performance. Participants identify a specific challenge in their organization and then address that challenge with input from leaders and other attendees, as MHProNews has learned.
“I am honored to have been selected to join this truly unique group of dedicated leaders,” said Nicely. “This personal challenge will not only stretch and expand my capacity, but allow me to experience a wide range of perspectives and adopt tools for increasing probabilities of goal attainment. I am very excited to be attending.”
Christina Deady, senior director of leadership and workforce development at NeighborWorks America, said, “The Achieving Excellence Program not only affects the organizations and communities but also results in a stronger pipeline of energized leaders throughout the nonprofit sector.” ##
