Presented by IntegralOrg

Leaders in the nonprofit sector – at any level of an organization – are a breed unto their own. They are dedicated individuals who are passionate about serving their communities and striving in creative ways towards social change.

Effective nonprofit leadership is an ongoing journey and intentional practice. Whether you are working on systems level community change, running a nonprofit organization, or leading a team – impactful leadership requires an understanding of self and an openness to learning. 

In this free 1-hour workshop for senior leaders, team leads, and aspiring leaders, Leslie Tamagi and Mike Grogan give an overview of leadership theory balanced with ways to put knowledge into practice. The workshop will also include an introduction to IntegralOrg’s Nonprofit Leadership Development program which is set to launch later this year.

Topics include:

  • Developing leadership within your self, your team, and your community
  • Evolving leadership to meet emerging needs in the nonprofit sector
  • Responsive leadership: adapting your role to real time
