Event description
For Board Members and Executive Directors Only! What your staff is afraid to tell you and why it is costing you influence, income and impact

About this Event

FOR BOARD MEMBERS & EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS ONLY!

A 25+ year nonprofit consultant tells it all. Maryanne Dersch will share what your staff really wants to tell you but is afraid to say and how it is hurting your organization's ability to connect with donors and raise money.

This workshop is not about criticizing leadership. It is about understanding how the hierarchical structure of nonprofits can thwart the free flow of internal communication and that reflects on external communication. Communication has to be effective internally before it can be effective externally.

If you want to increase your visibility in the community, raise more money and create better outcomes for those you serve, this workshop is for you. This is not about creating better tools. It is about creating an environment that is energy rich and productive so everything you do is more effective.

Participants will learn:

The problem, cost and cause of ineffective internal communications to your organization

How to stop side conversations and create an organization that can support the free flow of communication up and down the management ladder so all efforts are moving in the same direction

Specific tools and strategies to implement to allow for supportive and productive feedback

How the board structure can thwart communication among members and between board and staff, and how to create better communication flow

How to best support your staff to create healthy, happy nonprofits that easily attract interest, excitement and attention

How to create alignment in your brand so the image you portray and who you really are as close as possible, and you can build trusting relationships with supporters
