Do you feel it, too? The world is calling us to adapt over and over again in deep ways to face a wide variety of challenges. In the midst of constant change, how are you centering what matters most: your team's ability to navigate transitions? In a time of significant change in our world and our organizations, it’s more important than ever to gain skills and perspectives about how to lead people through transition.
Who is this training for?
When you are leading a team or an organization through a difficult change – when leadership is especially important–you will inevitably challenge what people hold dear – their daily habits, their loyalties, and their ways of thinking. This training is for social change and nonprofit leaders who lead teams and drive and influence change in their organizations. Previous training participants have found value in registering their leadership or management teams so they can bring back learning to their organizations together. Even if you don’t hold formal positional leadership at your organization, you are welcome to join!
In this online workshop, you will:
- Understand the distinction between change (an event or situation) and transition (a process) and recognize the impacts on people in your organization
- Be introduced to the Margin to Center framework as a way identify solutions to challenges
- Learn to distinguish between adaptive challenges and technical fixes and how they apply to a change occurring in your organization
- Organizational Transformation Without Equity and Allyship Is Meaningless by Lupe Poblano
- Exploring Influence without Authority by Kad Smith
Get ready to participate!
Our trainings come alive with your participation and willingness to engage. Please be ready to participate in group discussions and share your experience, creativity, questions, and challenges with us. For example, we will ask you to share and explore a real organizational challenge that you’re currently dealing with. We’ll share visual and verbal information, make time for group discussions, and create other opportunities for real-time participation.
This is a multi-day event. Please make sure you can attend all dates before registering! Before registering, make sure you are familiar with our cancellation policy.
