Leading Change: Timeless Principles that Never Expire
Jay Desko, The Center Consulting Group
Change is a necessary part of any business, and unfortunately, we aren’t always able to control the timing, speed, or degree of change we may encounter. What we are able to control is our response as leaders to this change. Leaders who can both successfully embrace and lead others through change will be positioning their organization and team to overcome obstacles and continue to grow. In this workshop, we will review the timeless principles of managing change that new expire.
Strengthening Your Team by Promoting Value & Efficiency
Lucretia Wells, The Design Group
Developing and then strengthening your team is an important part of your job, whether you're a new team leader or an experienced manager. This work starts with a careful analysis of the roles & responsibilities of team members. By identifying the synergies, redundancies, and gaps in the work of team members, leaders will gain valuable insight to map a path to greater efficiency.
Mapping Your Organization's Succession Strategy
Elizabeth Vibber, MS Catalyst Center for Nonprofit Management
One of the most important risk management tools your organization can employ is a comprehensive Succession Plan. This would include a Content Inventory which contains critical information for the organization, an Emergency Succession Plan to address all types of unplanned departures and a comprehensive Succession Strategy for your CEO’s planned departure. During this one-hour workshop, we’ll cover this ground and you’ll leave with the tools to map your organization's succession plan.
