“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead
Groups, committees, teams and collaborations are essential parts of the work in a nonprofit organization. What is the essence of “group process” and what is the role of the professional in creating successful ongoing decision making experiences? How does a staff person know when to lead and when to step back to ensure that staff members and volunteer leaders are engaged, empowered and motivated? This seminar highlights the stages and elements of collective impact, including building trust, managing participants needs and expectations, responding to conflict and staying focused on the organization’s impact.
