Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation: Creating Inclusive Environments
Many nonprofits are exploring ways to create more LGBTQ+ inclusive environments and foster greater gender equity in the workplace. Grounded in story-telling and interactive activities, this workshop will explore gender bias, gender identity, and sexual orientation, and the relationship these have to organizational policies and practices. We will pay special attention to the impact of COVID-19 on LGBTQ+ communities and other topics relevant to your organizations.

Are you looking to inspire and motivate your team across virtual space?

Adaptive Supervision (May)
(This workshop is full.) Learn how to identify what individual staff need around various aspects of their jobs and their particular challenges, and understand the importance of adapting your supervisory approach and communication style in support of staff success, and how to put that into practice.
Reimagining Governance for Nonprofit Organizations, Networks, and Coalitions
There is growing interest and urgent need for reimagining governance — leaders want innovative approaches and models which are more responsive and accountable to the communities they serve, while addressing racial equity and class. As current traditional hierarchical models of governance often lead to dysfunction and disconnection with communities, new approaches are increasingly being adopted by nonprofits and coalitions across the U.S.
(In-person workshop) Effective supervision contributes directly to mission effectiveness at your nonprofit. It is critical to maintaining a productive staff in the face of shifting and competing priorities. Strong supervision creates a culture of mutual respect in which employees and supervisors communicate regularly and clearly about job-related expectations, tasks and overall performance. This highly participatory training is designed for supervisors with all levels of experience.
Performance Management (May)
Explore the ways that adaptive communication and feedback contribute to supporting, developing, and managing successful employees, understand the dynamic continuum of employee performance, and learn and practice a model of performance management that focuses on adaptive communication and feedback strategies.
Effective Supervision Part II: A Deeper Dive into Decision Making, Communication and Performance Management
(In-person) Successful supervisors start with curiosity and awareness of their own supervisory and communication style, as well as their particular cultural lens. By expanding their view and skillfully shifting these default approaches, they can more fully develop staff and maximize performance. This highly participatory and reflective training takes a deeper look at concepts discussed in TSNE MissionWorks’ Effective Supervision workshop.
