Don't Miss Our May Seminar with Melissa Webster:
Leading Through Change - Adapting to New Regulations and
Progressing Organizational Culture
Wednesday, May 18, 2016
Melissa Webster, Director of Programs for Placement - One Hope United
You've heard it all before: Change is scary. Change is difficult. Change is uncomfortable. The reality is that change is probably the only thing that is guaranteed in this world. If we avoid change, we avoid potential for growth and opportunity. Remaining stagnant or developing "sameness" in today's competitive market is not an option for fundraisers or organizations as a whole. Part of initiating change or conversely, adapting to it, is knowing what is happening now and how making the changes will impact progress and future successes.
Whether you're the sole development person in your agency or part of a large fundraising machine, change is going to affect you throughout your career. "Leading Through Change: Adapting to New Regulations and Progressing Organizational Culture" will help prepare you for potential changes through the use of real-life examples of organizational and departmental change during "good" times and during some significant hardships, like the lack of an Illinois state budget. The seminar will also address the historical component of an organization, where many Board members and members of the leadership team have significant tenure, and the challenges that arise when trying to make significant changes that impact those individuals directly. How messages are communicated and the way all stakeholders in an organization are involved can directly impact how change is perceived and the effectiveness of what the future will hold once those changes are implemented successfully.
