HALF DAY WORKSHOP
Certificate Program Elective: Executive Leadership; Leadership & Supervision
Change is a given – whether you are undertaking a planning process, managing new opportunities, or adapting to change in the world around you, the ability to manage change well is critical to an organization’s success. Yet many nonprofit leaders struggle with leading change – they meet unspoken resistance, or don’t know where to start. This workshop will cover tools to help leaders speed up the pace of change.
In this workshop, participants will:
- Manage the human psychological, cultural and procedural aspects of change
- Approach change from a positive standpoint and generate alignment and buy-in
- Assess the culture of their organization and understand the implications of that for the pace and strategy of managing change
- Navigate distinct strategies for managing large scale organizational change
- Approach strategic planning as a change management tool
This workshop is best suited for:
- Executive directors
- Senior staff members
