About Us

The Leadership Sanctuary was founded in 2009 by Heather Kaye, a consultant and executive coach for leaders in small and large nonprofit organizations. In her past work, she had noticed that traditional leadership development programs were focused on strengthening technical skills and were not adequately addressing the burnout and turnover rate of those in leadership positions. She perceived that something more than management and organizational development techniques was needed for the CEOs and executive directors she was coaching.

Kaye decided to create a program for nonprofit executives that would help nonprofit leaders practice the skills necessary to face and solve their extremely complex management challenges exacerbated by dwindling resources and increased service demands. In addition, she desired to help forge community among nonprofit leaders so they would not feel so isolated. The result was The Leadership Sanctuary.

Kaye and her team have designed a curriculum that provides a safe and confidential space to actually practice and implement key leadership theories into daily actions, as well as have time to share actual case studies and challenge/learn from each other.
