The Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance recently launched the Cooperative Leadership Institute, a rigorous, six-month leadership development program designed for people working within cooperatives and credit unions in the Philadelphia area.

Participants in the Cooperative Leadership Institute (CLI) will develop skills that are applicable across co-op sectors. The topics include content on leadership, co-op culture, vision and strategic planning, delegation, accountability, creative problem solving, community organizing, participatory management and planning for growth.

There will be sector-specific learning communities for worker co-ops, food co-ops, consumer co-ops, non-retail, housing co-ops and credit unions. The CLI will increase participants' awareness of their personal learning and communication styles as well as their leadership strengths and challenges.
