Skills for Challenging Times: Preparing for Collaborative Opportunities

March 21, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm


Skills for Challenging Times:  Preparing for Collaborative Opportunities

This training is designed for Executive Directors and Board Members of each participating nonprofit organization.  Attendance in partnership with Board members is highly recommended. 

Nonprofits are increasingly realizing that individual organizations alone will not be able to improve community conditions, but instead must work in collaboration with others in innovative ways to create social change.   As collaborative opportunities present themselves, it is critical for nonprofit leaders to understand how to approach and recognize these opportunities, be clear about necessary internal processes, and ensure opportunities are not thwarted by simple missteps in negotiation.

The 3-hour session will help you as a participant to:

  • Assess your organization’s strategy and understand the role of relationships in enacting your vision
  • Better understand the current context for collaboration and the difference between collaboration and consolidation
  • Review the roles and processes associated with developing any sustainable partnership or collaborative venture
  • Increase your understanding of the types of collaborative models and how they are used
  • Identify anticipated process challenges and how to avoid them
