Effective Supervision: Creating a Culture of Mutual Respect (Apr)
(This workshop is sold out) Effective supervision contributes directly to mission effectiveness for your nonprofit. It is critical to maintaining a productive staff in the face of shifting and competing priorities.

This workshop invites leaders to develop practices that transform organizations into partners with the communities in which they work and serve.
Managing Chronic Tensions in Your Organization
This workshop will explore one of the fundamental roles of nonprofit leaders and managers—holding tensions in ways that are creative, constructive, and ultimately contribute to organizational growth and development.
Fund Development: Cultivation and Solicitation
A successful fundraising program is as much about knowing your donors as it is about achieving financial goals. Join Anne Peyton, CFRE and Jenn Hayslett for an interactive and engaging day of practice in “listening the gift” and the “art of the ask.” You will learn best practices and develop the skills involved in donor-centered fundraising conversations.

Innovation Through Improvisation
What if nonprofits could be more like improv actors? Applying the universal principles of unconditional support and team-based ideation will help bring your messages, mission and services to a new and exciting level.
