Change is often a dreaded word in the non-profit sector and who has time to manage it anyway with so much on our plates? Yet, to remain truly responsive to our mission and the often changing needs of the populations we serve, shifts in funding priorities, or evolving best practices, change is essential. Effective leaders not only embrace change that is needed, but they also cast the vision for why, create buy-in and ensure that the change sticks.
In this session, participants will learn the eight steps to change management with examples of how they apply in the non-profit sector.
Participants will leave the session with:
- A basic understanding of Kotter’s eight steps to change management
- Two practical tools or processes to try with their volunteer leaders as they first begin change work.
- Additional reading resources for practically managing change.
