Welcome to Interim Executives Academy

Our management tools and service protocols represent nearly two decades of interim leadership experience to shape a nonprofit executive vacancy as a highly unique and sophisticated capacity-building opportunity for charitable organizations, associations, labor unions, and congregations.

  • A clear pathway to navigate a successful interim executive engagement using proven protocols and management interventions.
  • A strong sense of professional identity and personal brand as an interim leader.
  • A formal affiliation with peers to pursue continuing education and networking as a community of practitioners who have each earned a Certificate of Completion from the Interim Executives Academy.
  • Eight experiences to support diverse learning styles like access to online discussion groups, peer roundtable meetings, and advisory support.
