Leaps Program

FONA’s professional development program which facilitates change through a mix of learning, action, and community and teaches employees the principles of innovation in an organization and change on a personal level. Over eight weeks, cohorts take a “Leap” by individually choosing a project they aim to complete while attending regular workshops and check-ins. During this time employees learn about framing challenges, navigating ambiguity, storytelling, design thinking and tuning in to their own self-awareness all for the opportunity to take learning into their own hands, take risks, try new things and share their discoveries along the way. Upon completion, employees deepen their understanding of prototyping, innovation, personal growth and business.
