It has never been more important that nonprofit organizations be able to translate their worthy missions into lasting positive impacts on the people and communities they serve.  And arguably it has never been more difficult to do so.  This interactive workshop will explore “mental models” for leadership in the social sector in 2017 and beyond.  We will ask how the most effective leaders think about areas such as: organizational development; measuring success in areas that resist quantification; forming strategic partnerships; building effective boards; overcoming resistance to change; and creating cultures of reflection and learning.  Our agenda will respond to the interests of the people in the room, with an emphasis on practical tools that help us turn good thinking into effective actions.

Organizations are encouraged to bring staff and board member teams to benefit most from the workshop.

David Grant served as President and CEO of the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation in Morristown, New Jersey from 1998 to 2010.  Now based in Vermont, he consults with people and organizations around the world that have a social or educational mission. He is a member of the Leap Ambassadors Community, a group of over 150 people nation-wide who support nonprofit leaders in creating high-performance organizations. His book The Social Profit Handbook: The Essential Guide to Setting Goals, Assessing Outcomes, and Achieving Success for Mission-Driven Organizations was published by Chelsea Green in March 2015.
