A Virtual Business Boot Camp
for Non-Profit Leaders
Leaders in nonprofit organizations (NFPs) are full of passion that inspires and motivates teams yet many have risen to their current position without access to robust management training. Although there are several leadership skills programs available, there are few options for anyone in the nonprofit sector seeking guidance in the practical, day to day techniques that translate passion into a thriving organization. Without such training, inefficiencies can prevent the organization from maximizing the value for beneficiaries and donors. In the worst scenarios, toxic working environments can emerge.
Fortunately, these techniques can be taught and put into immediate practice. NFP Bootcamp is a program designed to bring day to day, practical advice from our experienced consultants directly to the NFP community. By combining lectures, group discussions, and hands-on assignments, this program moves concepts beyond classroom theory, creating meaningful change for the attendees' organizations over the duration of the course.
Our Mission Statement: Train NFP leaders in business best practices to improve the daily experience of those dedicating their careers to the greater good and to increase the resources available for their missions.
Learn to translate your external brand into an internal brand message so that your team is delivering a consistent quality experience to your constituents, both outside your organization and within.
