The goal of this workshop is that you will leave with specific tools and techniques that you can use immediately to help create a culture of inclusion, empowerment and gratitude.
The 5 areas of leadership that will be the focus are:
- structuring communication so that each person is included and can share ideas in a nonjudgmental environment
- engaging and motivating board, staff and volunteers around the purpose and mission
- finding out individual skills and talents and matching them with jobs
- providing tools that generate many ideas and facilitate problem solving
- learning how to create a positive culture and provide meaningful ways to thank and recognize throughout the organization
