Quotes from Participants:

"Perspective was everything for me. When [Anthony] talked about not being able to solve complex problems with technical solutions it resonated with me, and I was able to identify the need for an immediate paradigm shift in my operations."

"Anthony was an excellent presenter - energetic and informational. He shared so much information that is relevant to my agency right now. I really appreciated the "making stories rather than telling stories" scenario and will adopt that into my development narrative. "Vision must be operationalized" was another great quote that I have already taken back to my team to dissect how we can better act on this. Just a lot of great information and learning."

"Miriam was a great presenter - incredibly knowledgeable and approachable. She did an excellent job of breaking down some of the challenges that keep us from moving forward as an agency. My aha moment of her presentation was that "a belief leads to behaviors that lead to practices," - oh so true! As leaders, we can define and determine how the team views the work we do and the culture within our agency. In our staff meeting later that day one of the team members said, "It's ok, we are family here," and it really made me think about what that means and if that is the best culture for our agency. Great insight!"

"I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to attend this SLPO sponsored workshop presented by 180 Management Group! The topics were incredibly relevant to leading in the nonprofit space at this moment in time and addressed challenges with thought-provoking solutions. Anthony and Miriam are excellent presenters, combining insight and engagement with energetic delivery. There was a great combination of group-think and individual assessment that added value to the experience by giving us time to hear from other agencies and reflect on our own. Just a really great experience that left me feeling energized, supported, and heard. Thank you!"

"I did not know what to expect upon my arrival, but I walked away with a wealth of knowledge to help myself and our organization grow and remain healthy."
