Leadership for Non-Profit and Government Organizations

Leadership for Non-Profit and Governmental Organizations will provide a solid foundation of skills that will enable your organization’s people to achieve the goals.

Non-profits and governmental organizations require unique skills to navigate the waters of internal leadership along with multiple and sometimes conflicting external interests.

Unfortunately, many people are left to learn leadership skills by trial-and-error and can create significant problems, and missed opportunities.

Leadership for Non-Profit and Governmental Organizations is an cost-effective, 2 1/2 day workshop that will provide valuable exposure to key tools to develop leadership skills that can support the organization’s goals. The workshop also reinforces the role of leaders in continuous improvement processes such as Lean-6σ and other continuous improvement processes as they can be applied to the non-profit, governmental and other non-manufacturing situations.
