It’s almost strategy season. Are you ready?

For many nonprofits, fall marks the beginning of strategy season. Just as the leaves change colors marking nature’s autumn transition, strategic planning represents a season of change for nonprofit organizations. It’s a time to assess your current state, adapt to new challenges, and embrace opportunities for growth.

And right now is the time to start preparing for those critical planning conversations.

But even tenured nonprofit leaders have a lot of questions about strategic planning:

  • What will strategic planning do for me and my nonprofit?
  • How do I know if my organization even needs a strategic plan?
  • What does an effective planning process look like?
  • How much does it cost? And where do I find the funding?
  • How much time will it take?
  • What is my role in the process?
  • How do I engage my Board, staff, and stakeholders in the strategic planning process?
  • How do I handle potential resistance or skepticism from Board members or staff?
  • How can I create a strategic plan that aligns with my organization’s values and mission?
  • How do I ensure that our strategic plan is actionable and not just a document that sits on a shelf gathering dust?

We have the webinar for YOU!

We have been facilitating strategic planning for nearly 10 years. In that time we have learned a lot about how to create a plan that helps your organization achieve its mission and you reach your full potential as a leader.

  • What to expect from a strategic planning process
  • How to overcome common objections from your board and staff
