Axelson Center Nonprofit Management Workshop Series @ North Park University, Johnson Center
Dec 6 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Unpredictable external forces (changing governmental regulations, shifting funding streams and tight talent markets) can cause uncertainty for organizational leaders and staff. External forces are not always within your control. How do you focus on what you can control, including organizational culture and employee engagement and retention, to ensure mission sustainability? In this workshop, Nonprofit HR’s Director of Project Consulting Lisa Wright Ponce will guide you through diagnosing your organization’s culture and understanding how to impact engagement directly, resulting in higher employee retention and renewed commitment and passion.

Featured Insight: Habits of Highly Effective Nonprofit Leaders

What sets the effective nonprofit leaders apart from the rest? We have the answers.

We connected with high-performing nonprofit leaders from organizations like the National 4-H Council and the YWCA and asked them what makes them tick. Each leader had unique insights into key habits that help them lead effectively, which we synergized into four key themes.

The most effective leaders:

  1. Place a high value on education
  2. Empower others
  3. Embrace Change
  4. Leverage their networks

These are habits you can cultivate in yourself and in your most promising nonprofit employees.
