Leaders in the nonprofit sector spend considerable time, energy and resources to assure people within our communities are fully served and well taken care of…but do we practice the same diligence in taking care of ourselves?
Some of our habits of denying or repressing our own personal needs for the sake of the mission are admirable, but are also simultaneously setting us (and our mission) up for failure.
In this session we will look at some of the habits Executive Directors and other nonprofit leaders practice that ultimately become harmful to their personal well-being and also put the success of their organization at risk. We’ll explore solutions to enhance our self-care from a personal and organizational level. In addition to improved interpersonal relationships, we’ll examine how these solutions can enhance our strategic and innovative approaches to our work and ultimately better our organizations by taking care of ourselves.
This session will assist participants in the following processes:
Appropriate and relevant for all nonprofit leaders.
Nonprofit Network Members - $45.00
Additional registrants from same member organization - $35.00
Nonmembers - $60.00
