Leading Your Organization Through Change
Change is constant. No healthy organization is immune from it. As a Board Chair, are you prepared to lead your board through change? As an Executive Director you prepared to lead your staff and constituents through change? As a program director are you prepared to lead your volunteers through change?
The Leading Your Organization Through Change workshop will give tools to create a culture of trust so that when change occurs you are able to lead more effectively. The workshop will address ways to make a plan for change when it’s necessary for the health of your organization as well as ways to anticipate and address unplanned changed that may come your way.
