Leader2Leader (L2L) is a unique experience is designed to connect like-minded and likehearted leaders who share similar positions in similar sized organizations.
This covenant peer advisory group is designed for C-level nonprofit executives who meet monthly for the purposes of mutual support, problem solving, and accountability in order to become world-class leaders of life-changing organizations.
These groups of 6 to 16 leaders meet each month and work on the principle that more brains are better than one; that the isolation and loneliness every executive leader feels can be overcome to produce exceptional results.
A professionally trained facilitator leads each group and ensures they remain focused on a disciplined process of group discussion and advice concerning a challenge, decision, or opportunity each member is facing in his/her leadership or business. Guest speakers and case studies also add another dimension to the overall learning experience.

Applications will be sent to the L2L group facilitator in your area who will set up a selection interview with you. Final selection to a specific L2L group is based on insuring that members represent similar roles, are of similar sized organizations, are non-competing, and each member will be a full contributor to the group. L2L facilitators are responsible for all final selection of members to the L2L groups they oversee.
Since L2L groups meet regionally, there may not be an L2L group currently meeting in your area. However, new groups are being formed all the time, so please fill out an application so that we know of your interest.
Becoming a Group Facilitator
L2L Group Facilitators are an essential component of the Christian Leadership Alliance L2L peer group experience. They think about what the group needs, determine the agendas, prepare supporting resources for meetings, and communicate critical information to all the members. Facilitators monitor the engagement of every member and maintain the quality of the experience.
If you are interested in this unique opportunity to facilitate an L2L group, we have provided an outline of the responsibilities and the compensation structure. Contact CLA's Leader2Leader coordinator Dr. Kent Wilson to learn more: firstname.lastname@example.org
