Leading Teams, Partnerships, and Collaborations Towards Greater Impact - September 6 & 13th, 2022
Too often strategic planning happens in a vacuum, visions casted, momentum built, plans written -- yet the people directly impacted by the plan (clients, donors, staff, volunteers, community) are left out. This process has led to plans that have failed to meet its full potential. Community engagement, though at times unwieldy and time-consuming, is critical to truly propel all variables towards a common goal. You’ll see that when done well, a snowball effect happens, where the impossible becomes possible. Learn strategies for engaging community stakeholders while balancing organizational/group needs (ie. strategy, mission, resources). Explore ways to leverage your leadership to build a collaborative and sound planning process. Learn more here.
Embracing Accountability as an Opportunity for Growth - September 7th, 2022
Accountability is fundamental to good governance and rather than viewing this as a burden, Boards should welcome accountability as an opportunity to use reporting as a means of celebrating performance, acknowledging endeavors, and generating confidence and trust amongst stakeholders. This session will provide insight into how Boards can easily put in place processes to create and maintain cultures of transparency and honesty-based governance. Register here.
Leveraging Effective Marketing & Communications For Nonprofit Growth - September 7th, 2022
Do your marketing efforts consistently and effectively secure donations, recruit volunteers and build awareness for your organization? Have you been rinsing and repeating the same copy for years? Join us and learn how you can devote a limited amount of time to significantly impact the reach and outcomes of your marketing efforts. All too often, we tend to get too close to the story of our nonprofit and forget that others don’t know what we know. We may go down rabbit holes, or well-meaning committees distract or take us off mission in ways that we don’t even realize we have veered off course. In order to maximize success, we must strategically stay on-target and on-mission at all times – thus highlighting the vital importance of strategic communications for effective marketing.

Elements of a facilitated experience may not always go as planned especially if the group is discussing a difficult topic or sharing personal stories or narratives. As a facilitator, you want to be prepared in any situation and create the best possible experience for participants in a group. Learn more about and register for this two-part workshop here.
