Friends Who Are Going
Event description


Are you a leader of a professional development organization?

Are you tired of struggling to identify and manage new board members?

Are you interested in sharing lessons learned and new approaches to old challenges?

Then join Quality of WorkLife experts Elizabeth and Joseph Lacroix along with your peers for a free workshop on Succession Planning for Professional Development Organizations!

We recommend that you and one or two fellow board members attend this workshop. Participants will:

  1. Learn valuable insights about yourself as a leader that may be masked.

  2. Learn to improve the effectiveness and engagement of prospective volunteer leaders.

  3. Learn to spot and correct conditions that hinder the development of a healthy culture.

Elizabeth and Joseph assist clients with workforce capacity development through comprehensive long-term diagnostics of an organization’s culture using workforce surveys and their own WorkStyle Preference Inventory – The RGB. These data gathering tools are used in combination with their proprietary software package CapacityWare™ Software to make projections about organizational performance and suggest concrete improvement strategies for leadership succession planning.


Hey, why is this free?

This is our way of introducing the Professional Development Consortium of Hampton Roads to the community we serve. Thank you to the Elizabeth and Joseph Lacroix for donating their time and talent as the workshop leaders, and thanks also to the Norfolk Public Library system for providing the meeting space!

Can I get professional development credits for attending?
