What's the Leadership Essentials course about (and not about)?
The content in this course was developed based on more than seven years of experience training Acumen’s Global and Regional Fellows. Our six-week beginner-level course is brief compared to Acumen’s year-long Fellows programs so you will get just a taste of Acumen’s leadership training. Our focus is on leadership. We will cover some of the basics of patient capital investing in one module, but we will not go into this in-depth. We'll touch on the impact investing and social enterprise sector, but we will not map out the space, nor will we compare/contrast Acumen’s work with others in the space.
At this meetup, you'll have the chance to find and sign up your team to learn essential leadership skills. This is a great opportunity to engage your community, and a great course for people new to Acumen’s work and the social impact space in general.
