WEBINAR: Creating a Breakthrough Strategy for Your Nonprofit

April 9, 2014 | 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

| Presenter:   Rob Sheehan |

Is incremental progress a satisfactory level of performance for your nonprofit? Are your staff and volunteers working very hard, but finding it difficult to get enough real traction moving forward? The answers to these challenges is not to work even longer hours or to work “smarter.” We need to work more creatively. The Break through Strategy webinar is designed to show you how you can drive innovation and creativity throughout your organization and create breakthroughs in performance. Learn how to leverage innovation concepts used by companies like Google and apply them to your nonprofit setting.

At the conclusion of this session, participants will:

  • Learn how to make their mission statement more impactful, and how to create metrics around it so they know the extent to which they are accomplishing their mission.
  • Learn the process for creating an Aspirational Vision for their organization and how it can help propel them forward.
  • Learn the power of Almost Impossible Goals and how to apply them to the strategy process
  • Learn new ways to identify Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats – and then how to weave them into a Strategy narrative which will guide their organization toward Breakthrough Performance into the future.

Target Audience
Nonprofit staff and board members at any level will benefit from this webinar – but those in the higher ranks will have more opportunity to apply what is learned. If you are a “junior” person in your organization and this session intrigues you, then recruit your boss to participate with you as well.
