This course will give you practical and guided experience with these critical areas of leading harm reduction volunteers and teams:
- Relationship Building
- Collaborative Leadership
- Personal Branding
- Business Acumen
But it's more than learning knowledge - we develop the personal qualities that inspires collaborative leadership as part of a unified team.
If you think you're the smartest person in the room and prefer to tell, sell, and hope it gels then this isn't for you. If you have a humble curiosity about what makes people tick and how to bring out the best in them, then read on...
This course is a unique blend of learning growth-minded habits with practical hands-on application to everyday situations as a leader. It's convenient, bite-sized micro-learning for busy professionals.
Crown Global HR and the Community Liver Alliance teamed up to develop the leadership talents in the non-profits served by the CLA. These new and emerging leaders seek to reduce the harmful impact of substance use disorders that spread liver disease, among other health related issues. Their work builds community as well as helps restore marginalized people back to full, productive lives. The CLA supports the efforts of these non-profits to run more effectively and sustainably, including leader growth and development.
The Learning Lab is an active and practical blend of Crown's Life Themes of an Outstanding Leader with The 5 Core Leader Competencies of Harm Reduction. It is a 6 month program with a cohort of participants matched with an experienced mentor in the field, supported by a local resource in their organization. The CLA coordinates the program, selects participants, plans live events, and supports the mentors. It's a dynamic program with plans for a national reach.
Crown supports the Learning Lab with the learning platform and leadership curriculum customized for the unique world of Harm Reduction in the US. Although Paul oversees the online portion of the learning, the Learning Lab program is run by The Community Liver Alliance.
Paul has designed, customized, and trained professional growth and hiring tools for education, non-profits, and business for over 30 years. He's always ready to listen, ask good questions, and find a creative solution together.
Paul enjoys helping people like you continue growing into the leader staff and students want to become!

Leading with confidence and grace
"This course helped me face my first year as Executive Director with courage to face the challenges of this work with confidence and grace. The hands-on activities helped me work through everyday issues with my team and board more as a coach than a referee. It helped me step back and look at situations more as teachable moment to help others lead themselves and the people they support. The support from my mentor helped be manage situations in ways that broke through barriers to reach higher."
