Leading Transformational Change: Go Slow to Go Fast

No matter what the focus of your nonprofit is, executive directors, board members and managers are being asked to lead ‘at the speed of lightning’.  The ever-changing pressures and accountabilities of funders, along with the often greater complexity of clients amidst the fast-paced competitive donor environment causes us to lead at a harried pace, implementing rapid changes that often leave our people and us fatigued.  What if Go Slow to Go Fast is the only way to lead transformational change?

By the end of the session participants will:

  • Review and use the methodical steps needed to lead and inspire change
  • Understand the human dynamics related to change and leave with practical tools to support staff through change

  • Understand the strength of organizational culture and how to leverage organizational culture to support change
  • Develop an action plan on how to embed change leadership practices
