LIVE to LEAD- Program begins January 2018

Deadline to apply to participate in 2018 LIVE to LEAD is November 30.

5-Part Leadership Series, plus a 3-Day Leadership Challenge ® Experience

"Nonprofit organizations operate on tight budgets, with nearly all of their dollars directed at supporting their mission. They often don't have the luxury of offering professional development opportunities for their leaders and staff," says Teresa Tanner, Fifth Third Bank Executive Vice President & Chief Administrative Officer.

With that in mind, LIVE to LEAD (Leaders Inspiring Visionary Excellence) was born in 2015. Working with the Leadership Council, Fifth Third Bank helped create a comprehensive development approach that highlights key competencies for nonprofit leaders, such as talent management and change leadership. The program delivers its message through five courses taught by Fifth Third Bank leaders, followed by a deeper leadership dive in a retreat setting.

"This program touches a cord in our community," says Teresa. "And that's what we all strive for in our daily work - to find the creative solution that meets the needs of our customers and our communities."
