Today’s extraordinarily, dynamic environment places unprecedented demands on nonprofit organizations to change or risk extinction.

This will be a fast-paced, interactive, and highly relevant course on the Nonprofit Leader’s Role in Change Management designed specifically for nonprofit leaders of all levels of experience. This course offers proven, proprietary methodology using six “Change Drivers” to initiate and sustain organizational change to build capacity, ensure continuing market relevancy, and assure financial sustainability. Participants will:
- Identify their personal responses to change and how their leadership style impacts their effectiveness as Organizational Change Agents
