Nonprofit Lifecycles

Using seven Lifecycle Stages to describe predictable growing pains nonprofits experience at each stage of organizational development, this workshop presents practical ways to think about and approach nonprofit capacity for your organization.

Program Overview

This workshop is based on the award-winning book, Nonprofit Lifecycles: Stage-based Wisdom for Nonprofit Capacity, and is ideal for executives and board members of nonprofits small and large, seasoned, or just-starting out.

In addition to learning about your organization’s capacity using the four “table legs” and developing your own Capacity Improvement Plan, you will work on a case study that reinforces the morning’s educational content, and receive a do-it-yourself diagnostic tool for assessing each organization’s own capacity.

Workshop Follow-Up Component

 This workshop is based on the award-winning book, Nonprofit Lifecycles: Stage-based Wisdom for Nonprofit Capacity, and is ideal for executives and board members of nonprofits small and large, seasoned, or just-starting out.
 
A week after the workshop, the attending nonprofit organization will be responsible for sending in their current Lifecycle Placement and Capacity Improvement plan (both short and long term). The majority of this information will be completed during the training. 
Participants who complete the follow-up Capacity Improvement Plan, will be eligible for a minimum of 3 hours (up to 6 hours) of consultation* from a trained and experienced Nonprofit Lifecycle Consultant with the purpose of clarifying and providing direction on Capacity Improvement goals. 
 
This consultation will need to be completed within 2-3 months after attending this workshop.
 

*Dependent upon number of registered organizations therefore consultation could include more hours.
