June 11 & 12 - Susan Newton of Development Strategies Plus
How To Make Change!
Susan will focus on dealing with change and address why (and how!) nonprofit organizations should master the art of adaptation. Organizations can be built to manage change; those that do, excel. This session will highlight the essential tools and show how to build a management process to take advantage of change.
Th focus of this session is to provide tools and resources to enable staff and board members to actively manage the demands of change and create a stronger, more positive environment by:
- Providing best practices in leading change regardless of the size of the organization
- Highlighting the people-side of the change process - the piece that truly makes the difference between changes that are successful or not
- Providing tools to make it work in the form of a practical toolkit to 'get it right'!
- Focusing on how and where change initiatives usually fail - and how to mitigate/manage the risk of failing
The sessions are held at the Walla Walla Community College William A. Grant Water & Environmental Center from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. There is no charge to attend, but registration is required. The sessions are limited to 35 participants. Participants are invited to bring their own lunch or a lunch or purchase lunch at the college's Titus Creek Cafe.
