Partnering to Build Stronger Communities
Champions Leadership brings together creative and ambitious leaders to transform the existing system of leadership development. We go beyond traditional classroom-based formats to an experiential-based model by partnering the for-profit world with the nonprofit world.
Leaders of community-based organizations, or nonprofits, face many challenges. A lot of them do not have a formal business education. They are driven by a passion to solve an issue in their community. This thinking creates new opportunities for profit and competitive advantage. Competitiveness of a company and health of a community are closely intertwined, but not all profit is equal. Companies that profit through a social purpose represent a higher form of capitalism.
How it Works
Champions Leadership alliance connects for-profit leaders with community based organization (CBOs) leaders to solve issues facing both. For-profit companies purchase memberships for leaders who would like to participate. Each paid membership comes with a free membership for a CBO of their choice.

How did we get started?
Our parent company, 360 Solutions, has worked with organizations for 20 years. We provide leadership development that helps business go from traditional to high performance. Champions Leadership started as a way to give CBOs with small budgets access to our transformative curriculum, and ultimately make communities stronger through an innovative partnership.
Our pilot program in Waco, Texas has been wildly successful. Over the course of 3 years, we've helped 18 community-based organizations (CBOs) develop their leaders while helping them create sustainability and gain media exposure.

This option is for anyone who wants to lead the effort to bring Champions Leadership to cities across the country. You'll learn our system inside and out, put together groups, and facilitate sessions. Many area directors have their own consulting firms already, but that's certainly not a prerequisite.
On the next page we'll include more information about how to get started as an Area Director.
