Leading From Within

Is your nonprofit ready for change? An important responsibility of nonprofit Executive Directors and Boards is to ensure the sustainability of the organization. Yet, according to BoardSource research, only 27% of all organizations report that they have a written executive succession plan.

This training program will be interactive and will have expert trainers to discuss topics such as Personal Leadership Style, Leading your Team, Working with your Board, Financials, Fundraising/Networking, Strategic Planning, Imposter Syndrome, Mentoring and more.
