Achieving Collaborative Capacity for Executive Success (ACCES) is a transformational learning experience for social sector leaders.

ACCES experiences can be customized to blend the benefits of on-site face-to-face learning with the convenience of on-line learning, and can be crafted to move individuals or whole organizations to achieving better results. Embracing the challenge of adaptive leadership and innovation, this experience explores capacity building across the domains of personal, organizational, and community.

Today as leaders, organizations and communities are challenged by the need to be adaptive and innovative to solve the grand challenges of our time.
