Event Description

To pre-register or sign up for reminders:

Today’s nonprofit leaders face a barrage of challenges from every direction: budget reductions, shrinking revenue streams, and shifting program priorities. Employees, in turn, endure frozen (or even reduced) salaries, layoffs fears, and increased caseloads due to smaller staffs and increased clients in need. In the midst of so many competing demands, how does a leader motivate workers?

This highly interactive and experiential workshop focuses on how to meet these challenges by creating and fostering connected and engaged work environments. We will also explore how these engagement strategies can help people and organizations achieve superior and sustained performance at any time.

Key topics will include:

• What is “employee engagement” and why should we pay attention to it now?
• What does research tell us about the impact of engagement on ourselves and our organizations?
• What are the three characteristics that differentiate an engaged workplace?
• How can we adapt the critical leadership behaviors that will increase engagement for ourselves, our Board members, and our employees?
• What actions can we take right now that will make a difference?
Join local expert Barbara Healy to explore motivational strategies and tactics that work.
