Creating Resilient Leadership for Nonprofits

June 4, 2020 | Online Workshop

Leadership represents the most important resource in our communities, and like all of our most precious resources, leadership is sustainable.

But in order for leadership to be a sustainable resource and one that is readily available to our nonprofits it must be managed responsibly. Unfortunately too often nonprofit organizations have a reactive model to leadership. They struggle to create reliable pipelines for leadership development and often only think of recruitment when they face a crisis or experience leadership attrition.

This workshop is designed to help nonprofit leaders understand the importance of planning for leadership development within their board and volunteer networks so that they never need to struggle with the board and volunteer recruitment.

Participants will:

  • Learn how to build stronger leadership pipelines for their organizations
  • Encourage systems for proactive vs. reactive leadership development
  • Create opportunities that develop leadership beyond the Board function
  • Develop strategies to address long-term leadership resilience
