Calling all new managers! Have you found yourself leading a team for the first time without any formal training on what it takes to be a successful people manager? Or perhaps you’ve been struggling and are looking for a refresher on management best practices? You are not alone! Especially in the nonprofit sector, where resources for training are often scarce at best. This workshop will show you the management techniques you need to set yourself – and your team! – up for success. Participants will learn how to set expectations and manage performance day to day. You will also leave with the tools to improve productivity, communication, and overall team satisfaction.

Intended Audience: Nonprofit staff that are new to management positions.

Outcomes: You will...

  • Gain knowledge/overview of management best practices
  • Learn specific techniques to set, communicate, and evaluate expectations
  • Explore how to manage strengths and weaknesses throughout the year
  • Leave with a personalized template for effective staff management
