This full-day session focuses on the skills, knowledge and practices necessary to exceed as an impactful Executive Director at a nonprofit organization.
Through the use of assessments, tools, discovery sessions and best practice presentations, participants will explore the balance between the “business side” and the “mission side” of their complex nonprofit position. We will examine key roles in—
- The elements of leadership
- Financial stewardship
- Board recruitment
- Supervising staff
- Communicating with volunteers.
We will provide a planning tool during the presentation and participants will leave with an action plan for personal growth. To maximize this investment of you time, we strongly encourage attendees to commit to the full day.
