Finding Sustainability: Financial/Leadership Principles to Stop the Endless Cycles of Stress&Burnout

ID : 13552   
« back to classes page
Sustainability in nonprofit organizations is both a financial issue and a leadership one. Nonprofit leaders often feel they’re chasing sustainability, always just out of reach. And this lack of sustainability leads to tension, mutual frustration, and burnout.
Through practical application of sustainable practices, nonprofit leaders can indeed clear their path. In this course, we will bust some myths pervading our sector, dive deep on financial analysis models, consider the principles of strategic decision-making, and study the delicate recipe of a healthy relationship between the Staff and Board.
Participants will understand and apply:
  1. Principles of nonprofit financial analysis and how they lead to fundraising strategy, program budgeting, and organizational priorities.
  2. The importance of succession planning, institutional knowledge capture, and disaster recovery in organizational sustainability.
  3. The distinct roles and responsibilities of the Staff and Board.
  4. Practical communication strategies for building and maintaining trust between Staff and Board.
  5. Models of leadership evaluation that lead to continuous self- and organizational improvement.
