Developing a High Performing Nonprofit Team


"If your organization only takes advantage of one professional development training per year …. this is the one you won’t want to miss!"



Discounts available for Santa Clara County nonprofits. (Details Below)



An effective team is a great asset to your organization; an ineffective one can damage productivity and morale, and can be detrimental to your long-term organizational health. As we all know, teams are made up of individuals with different work experience and backgrounds, each with his or her own particular working style and expertise. These dynamics can often lead to conflict when colleagues don't have the tools they need to work together. CEN can help! This full-day session will show teams how to use an understanding of individuals' social styles and values to create a more effective working environment, leverage collective assets, and work together more strategically. Participants will discover ways to identify barriers, such as implicit vs. explicit agreements, explore how to use team charters to set yourselves up for success, as well as tips for great team meetings. You must register in groups of at least 3 team members ... we encourage full team participation for maximum impact (please contact us if your team is larger than 6 people)!

Intended Audience: Nonprofit Teams; including Executive Directors, managers, and supporting staff.


  • Understand values and different social styles in the work place and how they affect the way people work together
