NTEN Course: Digital Literacy For Executive Leadership – April 19, 2017
Last year I launched the first-of-its-kind online training school for leaders who wanted to improve their strategic thinking, comfort, and literacy with all things digital. Six intrepid leaders put themselves forward to beta test the course and together we learned a lot.
Beta version of the online learning platform and content
Testing is such an important part of launching a new campaign, or product. This process was invaluable in helping frame up how to move forward with this project, that I believe so passionately in.
One of the key pieces of feedback was that the course was just too long. Too much of a commitment (over 6 hours of recorded lessons). These leaders wanted more knowledge and information to remain at the top of their game, but the learning was competing with other business priorities. While the desire to be better informed, make better budgeting decisions, and better hiring decisions was there, there was a challenge in fitting this into the schedule when more urgent priorities arose.
After the beta test – and planning a wedding in 2016 – Digital Literacy For Leaders returns in a revised format for 2017
1 – I’ve partnered with NTEN as a faculty member and deliver a modified version of this course, aimed at practitioners experiencing lack of buy in from executive leadership, as part of their new series of virtual learning courses. Keep reading for details.
2 – I’m in the process of creating a SHORTER VERSION of the full, original course, incorporating the feedback from the beta participants. This course will still be designed for Executive Directors, Board Members, CEOs and similar senior executive leadership roles.

This NTEN iteration of Digital Literacy For Leaders is designed for those feeling frustrated by lack of support, understanding, buy-in, or outright hostility to digital marketing, fundraising, and communications from the top of their organization. You are not alone! Throughout the years leading up to the launch of the Digital Literacy For Leaders course, and the eight months of beta testing I heard every objection, complaint, concern, frustration, myth, and straight up nonsense in the book…….
I have your back. Sign up for the NTEN course and together we will discuss and discover facts, strategies and tactics to help you move the needle in your organization and advance your cause through the digital opportunities available.
