Organizational Consultation (deep dive into your nonprofit's needs):
40 minute consult on February 12 or 13, 2024

Participating in the Credential in Leadership and Organizational Culture will outfit you with practical, actionable skills and tools for building a high-performing nonprofit (this credential is offered through Utah Nonprofits Association, UNA). The course includes online, live training sessions, consultations, a library of resources and upon full completion of the course requirements, a Credential Badge in Leadership and Organizational Culture.

As more Millenials and GenZers enter the workforce, organizational leaders need to rethink and refresh their thinking in how to lead, and re-evaluate what leadership culture and structure should look like. The traditional canon of nonprofit organizational leadership is replete with expectations that often foundationally center in "saviorism" in policy and practice.  What can you, your team, and stakeholders do to re-imagine how you do your work in the community to dismantle and restructure this? Learn how language and seeming "best practice" can often continue harming the people we intend to help.

As nonprofit leaders, we most likely find ourselves involved in the work of this sector because we feel called to implement the mission of our organizations. We seek to achieve the vision of the change we feel is needed in our community, and we are driven by values that we hope guide the way we do our work. 

However, miscellaneous pain points or organizational life cycle challenges (and sometimes, amazing opportunities for growth) can often challenge our ability to best meet our mission. As nonprofit leaders, our personal skill sets (strengths and weaknesses) need constant revisiting to make sure we are not “getting in the way” of what we hope to achieve. The Credential in Leadership and Organizational Culture can help with that.

We will take what has traditionally been rested in majoritarian-centered ideals of nonprofit professionalism and explore it through a JEDI (justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion) lens, in an effort to rethink the concept of "best practice."

“Helping, fixing and serving represent three different ways of seeing life. When you help, you see life as weak. When you fix, you see life as broken. When you serve, you see life as whole. Fixing and helping may be the work of the ego, and service the work of the soul.”  - Dr. Rachel Naomi Remen

Online Classroom Training Sessions
Your subject-matter-expert/consultant will lead you and other nonprofit leaders in two days of online training sessions. To get the most of this training, we ask you to please complete the participant survey in its entirety (due one week prior to the training). You will receive the survey two weeks prior to the first session. It is our objective to tailor this training to your needs; the more our subject-matter-expert/consultant knows about you, the more you will get out of it. 

A One-on-One Consultation
You'll meet with the subject-matter-expert and receive specific feedback and coaching on your organization's culture and leadership. 

Successful participation means that you’ll develop a leadership and organizational development plan and timeline based on the principles explored in the Credential. On which areas of your own personal growth would you like to work? What resourcing will you need to accomplish this and what do you need to do to acquire the support from donors and your board to achieve the objectives of your plan and timeline? What cultural shifts would you like to undertake in how your team meets community needs.
