NELI Alumni

Legal and Ethical Issues For Leaders

Don Kramer, Esq.


"When I started NELI, I knew I had natural abilities to lead, but I didn't know how to leverage my strengths. I also didn't have the knowledge about leadership and organizational change to transform my nonprofit and redirect it for the future. NELI gave me the self-knowledge, expertise in the field, and support network to make that happen."

Laurie Zierer Executive Director Pennslyvania Humanities Council


Kristin"I wanted to enroll in the NELI program to identify ways to inspire others and implement tangible ways for others to engage in Gearing Up

Now I not only have the tools to increase self-awareness, I also have the tools to identify personality traits in others – and leverage their strengths and insights for the organization. "
