Management for Nonprofit Organizations
Nonprofit organizations are expected to be well managed. Organizations cannot thrive solely on the appeal of their mission. Donors expect results, and the key to producing results is good management. Nonprofits must hire and retain the best talent, plan their work, and execute on their plans. All this depends on having competent managers not just at the top, but throughout the organization.
This course is designed for nonprofit managers who want to elevate their performance and for people who aspire to become managers. Gain an understanding of the skills, knowledge, and attributes needed to become an effective leader and manager. Learn how to build an exciting and productive work environment, including strategies for achieving a high level of individual and team performance. As a final deliverable, prepare an annual budget and strategic plan, an employee evaluation form, and a series of interview (hiring) questions designed to help identify potential talent.
