June 7 - A More Productive Team, Part 1 PRESENTED BY Aaron Eckhardt, MSW
July 5 - A More Productive Team, Part 2
In his 7 “Habits of Highly Effective People,” author Steven Covey contends that organizations become stronger when the team is more diverse. Varied experiences and perspectives bring different spheres of influence, better prepare organizations for challenges, help organizations work more effectively with their target audiences, and even give a funding edge with many grantors.
This 2-part session will assist you in creating a more productive, responsive team by helping you assess your own organizational diversity and examining the products and language that help and hinder diversity and inclusion. Then, you will have the opportunity to receive expert technical assistance to develop a product – be it a Diversity and Inclusion statement or a board recruitment plan - tailored to the needs of your organization.
