Uncommon Wisdom for Nonprofit Success

The common focus for nonprofit leaders is on the “outer game” of goals, plans, budgets, tasks and meetings.  There’s no shortage of great advice and best practices in these areas.  In times of uncertainty, challenge and change, however, looking to the “inner game” is where big gains are found.  A morning of  “uncommon wisdom” will help you learn how to maximize resources, enhance morale and breathe new life into your organization!  No matter the role you play in your organization, this workshop will be meaningful to you.
