Making Change – Even When You’re Not “In Charge”

March 9, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm


Workshop Overview:

Nonprofit staff bring creative ideas and solutions to our work whether or not we have formal positions of power or authority. We see possibilities for change and may not be sure how to maximize our influence and move our ideas forward successfully. The 2017 CNE Nonprofit Survey showed that over 1/3 of emerging leaders saw their ability to address bigger challenges in their organizations as an area with room for improvement, a situation that hadn’t changed for them in the last year.

Rebecca_PerryRebecca Perry of Rebecca Perry Leadership facilitates this dynamic and interactive 4-hour workshop.  It will provide models that can help you navigate roadblocks, work more effectively in cross level teams, and help address a feeling of being stuck at work.

-Learn tangible models to identify your own influence and power on an intrapersonal level
-Learn to identify the different roles for change in a team or organizational structure

Optional Learning Circles follow to help you apply the models in your workplace. Priority registration given to LEAD alumni through January 24.  Co-presented by the Center for Nonprofit Excellence of the Community Foundation for Monterey County and alumni of LEAD Institute.
