About the Webinar

If 2020 has accomplished nothing else, it has brought the urgency to address deep cultural wounds and systemic inequities to the collective consciousness. These issues have brought so many of us to the point of near psychic paralysis. As leaders in our communities we need to take a step back, breathe, and get to work. We are incredibly fortunate in that—what is unique about the social sector is the evergreen promise of a better future that is captured in your organizations’ missions and visions. In fact, that is your charge—to change the things you cannot accept.

We invite you to join Measurement Resources for a webinar to explore five strategies that will help you revitalize your passion and find the resolve to maintain the intensity of sustained focus you need to face the many unmitigated challenges that lie ahead. The ability to remain focused on big-picture strategic goals, as non-mission critical circumstances arise on a given day, will allow your organization to better manage its time and resources and achieve more mission outcomes. By putting these five strategies into practice, your organization will be more effective and the communities you serve will benefit even more as a result.

This webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, December 8, and begins at 1:00 pm (Eastern Time). It is free and open to all to attend, however registration is required.
