LEARN - Everybody Leads

About the LEARN Program 

LEARN - “Everybody Leads” is a foundational leadership and skills development program for those looking to improve their general leadership skills. The program is conducted in six afternoon sessions over a twelve week period. It is for employees who are not in a staff management position.

  • Increasing Emotional Intelligence: discover what emotional intelligence is, practice techniques that develop your emotional intelligence and implement these proven methods in the workplace to enhance relationships and increase productivity

Program Cost

The total cost for the program is $300 due to the generosity of the United Way of Greater Cincinnati, Interact for Health, and the Greater Cincinnati Foundation. Keeping the cost of the LEARN program affordable would not be possible without the support of these funders, volunteer instructors and speakers.

NLIGC Payment Policy

Due to the generosity of our funders, our program costs are kept low to ensure equal opportunity for all non profit organizations. Additionally, the NLIGC needs to ensure that classes will be filled to capacity throughout the duration of the program.

Invoices will be issued at the start of the program, payable in 30 days, unless a payment program is agreed upon at the start of the program. If you or your organization cannot pay in full prior to the deadline, we can create a payment plan based on your organization’s need. Please note, this payment plan must be created prior to the start of the program. If you have not paid by the deadline (or created a payment plan), class participation is at the discretion of the NLGIC.

If you are officially accepted into the program and then you choose not to complete the program or course, your tuition will not be refunded. Course of action for these situations will be handled on an individual basis. ‚Äč
