More about the Workshops


"Transforming Your Leadership To Thrive In A Rapidly Changing World"

We are living in an age of drastic change. The pandemic, polarizing politics, culture wars, and divergent
ideas about diversity have taken a toll on organizations that seek to make our communities a place where
everyone can thrive. The work you do is more important now than ever before. How do you lead in a
constantly changing environment? How do you lead an organization that is required to change internally so
that it can create change externally? How do you transform your leadership to not only meet the needs of a
changing community but also thrive because of it? Disruptive changes in our society require disciplined leaders. During this workshop, participants will address the disruptive external changes that create opportunities for disciplined leaders. Our expert facilitator will provide steps a leader can take to thrive in an age of disruption. Participants 
will  "be stretched" in order to enhance their flexibility and adaptability. This workshop is tailored specifically for nonprofit decision-makers.

"Developing a Culture of Change in Your Organization"

Now more than ever, we need organizations that are agile and flexible in order to respond to the challenges
that we face not only in our communities but amongst our team. It is not enough to know WHAT changes
we need to adopt, we need to know HOW we make change possible. Many organizations suffer from change fatigue. The constant shifting of priorities, the continual implementation of short-term quick fixes, and results that don't align with efforts make our teams tired. Not only do they tire, they become apathetic toward new changes. In order to overcome change fatigue and a culture of apathy, there needs to be a clear path forward. Organizations that are good at managing change have made cultural shifts to make change last. In this session we will discuss the cultural shifts that your organization needs to make to implement and manage change that supports your organization's strategy.
Our expert facilitator will discuss change management principles and strategies that leaders can readily adopt in their
organizations as they undergo change initiatives and enhance their learning experience.
