Strategy for Turbulent Times - Learn Why Good Strategists Outperform Great Planners


When nonprofit leadership adopts a robust strategy, mission is advanced, challenges are overcome, new opportunities for growth are developed, and board members and staff are energized and empowered. 


Yet, for too many nonprofits, planning has gotten in the way of creating good strategy - the high level decision-making framework used each and every day.


In this training, participants will learn:


●     Why many nonprofits are putting the “cart before the horse” by planning without strategy….even during strategy retreats.

●     How to develop a driving strategy that can be understood by everyone and in day-to-day decision-making.

●     Easy-to-use tools that executive teams and their boards can use to become better strategists

●     The five-step approach to effective strategic governance

●     Three things you can do at your very next board meeting to foster strategic governance
