Bringing Nonprofit Teams Together with Appreciative Leadership

06.17.21

There is a light at the end of the tunnel as we emerge from the (for many) traumatizing events of COVID-19.  And in this window of time, before life and work revert back to a pre-pandemic bustle, business leaders can benefit from taking time to pause and envision what opportunity this moment presents for their business, for their teams, and for themselves as leaders.  Post-pandemic, leaders must nurture their teams and adapt internal systems to help their vision come to life.  But rather than focusing on the daunting “uphill battle” ahead, we should recognize what is good and what an organization is doing right.  Only then do we build on and expand those joyful and meaningful realities to imagine a successful future. 

During this webinar, we will examine the concepts of performance management and strategic alignment as viewed through a progressive lens where team members are seen, heard and appreciated.  We will highlight the benefits of a workplace culture where continuous dialogue, strengths-based goal-setting, and strategic alignment lead to higher levels of engagement, productivity and customer satisfaction. 

We will dive into the concept of “appreciative inquiry” and how this unique and inspiring approach to organizational change can bring teams together and help people move toward a shared vision.  By engaging others in strategic innovation, appreciative inquiry focuses on the strengths of individuals and organizations to improve performance by encouraging people to study, discuss, learn from, and build on what is working, rather than trying to fix what is not. 

In addition to engaging in an instructive role-play opportunity, participants will also leave the session with practical tips and tricks that help make implementing appreciative inquiry and continuous dialogue in the workplace easy.  Finally, we will highlight our employee-driven performance platform, BPM Link, a tool developed by HR leaders to support individuals and organizations in building a strong foundation for success.   

This webinar is part of the 2021 Nonprofit Education Series.
