Do you want to lead strategic organizational change in a competitive not-for-profit environment?
This innovative multiphase workshop explores the key challenges facing today’s not-for-profit leaders using a combination of individual and group activities, case studies, videos and facilitator-led discussion.
In Phase I, you will concentrate on creating a strong strategic plan to achieve buy-in from your Board of Directors and other important stakeholders. In Phase II, you will address the operational side of business and how to bring your organization’s vision to life.
This exclusive program (maximum 25 participants) offers a premium experience that integrates personalized and small group coaching, along with targeted NFP tools and resources to support your learning and professional development.
This program is facilitated by two industry experts to ensure you receive a holistic picture of effective strategy implementation and the right tools for success within your organization – from operations and culture to technical expertise and change management.
Previous experience with strategic planning is recommended prior to registration, as the objective of this workshop is to enhance existing skills.

Before attending the workshops, you will complete a DiSC® Work of Leaders assessment to understand your leadership and communication styles. This will help immensely in developing strategies that align with your personal leadership style during the workshop, and will strengthen your leadership beyond the workshop.
Small group coaching sessions between the two phases of the workshop provide an intimate environment to address specific questions and allow participants to learn from each others’ experiences.
We provide optional pre-work to complete before Phase I, including helpful strategy and culture worksheets to help personalize the workshop content to your organization.
You also have an opportunity to interact with peers before and in between phases to maximize learning and networking.
