Announcement: Learning to Lead YNPN San Diego Workshop

More and more emerging leaders (ages 35 and younger) are moving into leadership roles within nonprofits. With any changes in roles and responsibilities requires a distinctive leadership voice and outstanding management skills. From staff to volunteer to governance roles understanding what makes a great and effective leader is always a critical skill to have. Our discussion will include information about what is outstanding leadership and leaders that:

· “Pursue organizational mission regardless of constantly changing funding;

· Use cross-training and joint efforts with other organizations;

· Capture what organizations learn and share these lessons about success and setbacks, and;

· Understand that the legacy of their work is about creating a change that lasts beyond their organizational lifetime.”

Join YNPN San Diego and Liz Shear on Thursday, September 17 for a two hour workshop to learn about managing leadership shifts and advancement. Liz Shear, an organizational consultant who specializes in leadership and governance issues, will facilitate an interactive workshop including a guest appearance by one of her clients that will discuss how to navigate leadership change in your workplace and, a World Café discussion on your leadership goals and challenges.
