Managing Change

Lead Your Nonprofit
Successfully Through Change

What is going to happen next in our organization? How are we going to respond to changes in the environment that affect our core programs and operations? How do we know if the ways in which we are changing are going to further us toward our organizational goals? What if we lose our focus or organizational culture by becoming opportunistic? What if we lose our financial stability by not taking advantage of opportunities for growth? Whether you’re aware of it or not, these are the types of questions that your staff ask themselves every day. What is your role as a leader in managing your nonprofit through various phases of change?

In this cutting-edge session, you will learn how to preserve change amidst order and order amidst change. You will learn how to develop an entrepreneurial culture within your organization that encourages risk-taking and innovation. You will learn one of the core competencies of nonprofit leadership: the ability to continuously, genuinely and incisively question and improve your organization’s strategies to deliver its core programs.

CSL will share the most current change strategies with you so you can lead your organization 365 days a year, not one day 365 times.
