"We participated in the leadership development sessions and looked around the room. Not only were the other organizations represented standouts in the nonprofit field, the training we were offered by TCLI was second to none. TCLI created a learning space where there were no egos getting in the way and where everyone there was eager to share what they knew and to learn what they didn't. Each time we attended a training, we came back home excited to share what we had learned."
