TESTIMONIALS

"I gained so much through my time working with TLI. It's a rare find to encounter two such experienced nonprofit professionals who are as generous with their knowledge, networks, and ideas as Jeff and Tim. During my six months in TLI I was pushed to think deeper about my work - both what I was doing and how I was doing it - and given time to reflect in one-on-one sessions and with the group. Time is precious for all EDs and this was time very well spent!" 

Corinne Cannon

Executive Director and Founder

Greater Washington DC Diaper Bank

"As a new leader in the D.C. area and a new CEO, it has been invaluable to work with Tim and Jeff and be part of the TLI cohort. The experience provided opportunities to connect with other leaders in the area and share our success, challenges, resources and practices, and hear from additional non-profit leaders."

Heather Jenkins

CEO

Literacy Lab

"TLI was just what I needed. As an Executive Director of a new and growing organization, it is easy to get stuck in the weeds. However, having the space to freely learn, grow and explore has helped me become a better leader and a better person."

Jalessa Hall
