Basic Management Skills to Build Healthy, Dynamic Nonprofit Organizations

Supervisors, Managers and Executive Directors working in non-profit organizations who have had little or no management training and are responsible for managing staff.

This one day workshop will assist new and developing Supervisors and Managers to gain basic supervisory skills.

Managers and supervisors in the nonprofit sector are often promoted into a management role without the benefit of specific management training. Not everyone can be a manager. Certain skills, or abilities to translate knowledge into action are required to help other employees become more productive. The management skill set builds upon the technical or professional skill set and adds a high degree of self-awareness and a capacity to understand or empathize with the feelings of others.

Workshop participants will:

  • Gain confidence in their role as manager.
  • Identify gaps in their management skill set.
  • Develop leadership styles to match the situation and the employee.
  • Learn key supervisory skills to effectively manage staff including, how to deliver clear direction and effective feedback, and successful delegation approaches and techniques.
  • Explore the sources of power inherent in a management position.
  • And much more.
