Marie Peeler of Peeler Associates to Speak at ECCF’s Institute for Trustees, March 25

PEMBROKE and HAMILTON, MA, ISSUED MARCH 10, 2017… Marie Peeler, founder and principal of Peeler Associates, an executive coaching and leadership development firm working with individuals and organizations to increase their leadership effectiveness, will present the workshop, “Everyone Leads!  An All Encompassing Approach to Board Leadership,” at the Essex County Community Foundation’s Institute for Trustees on March 25 at the Pingree School in Hamilton, Mass.

In this extended master class, Peeler will discuss what the best nonprofit boards do to ensure exemplary leadership.  She will introduce participants to a new way of thinking about leadership through creative competencies that help drive leadership success and reactive tendencies that can derail leadership altogether.  Participants will gain insight into how assumptions and habits of thought drive creative leadership or hold nonprofit boards and senior staff in reactive modes.  Using the Nonprofit Lifecycles Model, attendees will apply this newfound knowledge to the important and varied work that must be done at every stage of a nonprofit organization, to create systems and processes for a board that leads by example.

The Essex County Community Foundation (ECCF) promotes philanthropy throughout Essex County and its 34 towns and cities by managing charitable funds for donors, providing grants and services to nonprofit organizations, and engaging in community leadership initiatives.  The Institute for Trustees (IFT), established by the ECCF in 2010, is an all-day conference for boards of directors, boards of trustees, and executive directors of nonprofit organizations, offering them an intensive day of training, sharing and networking with other board members across the region.

“It’s an honor to speak at the Institute for Trustees,” said Peeler.  “For Massachusetts nonprofits, this is a significant event, and I’m glad to have the chance to contribute to the important sharing of knowledge that takes place on this day.”
