Gwinnett Series | Leadership in Today’s Nonprofit

This daylong workshop will unpack the challenges and opportunities that our rapidly-changing environment offers nonprofit leaders. Leadership must keep the board engaged, account for staff and program performance, manage finances, and keep up with resource development, including donor cultivation – many hats for one person to wear. Add in deeper undertakings like strategy, change management, and community relations, and the high level of difficulty is clear. This workshop will prepare you to build and maintain a resilient organization, including the theory, practical techniques, formal assessments, and case studies you need to handle the full range of responsibilities.

Key components include:

  • Developing a leadership mindset for today’s nonprofit
  • Understanding the characteristics of a high performing nonprofit
  • Trends in fundraising and sustainability
  • Managing through emotional intelligence, equity, and inclusion

What you’ll learn:

  • Leadership styles in an environment of change
  • Of-the-moment trends impacting nonprofits, including fundraising currents
  • An understanding of organizational culture and change management strategies
  • New tools for using emotional intelligence, inclusion, equity, and other concepts to manage today’s workforce


Existing leaders in organizations: board officers, management, executive staff, and anyone else responsible for leading others in a nonprofit organization.
