    I Like It Like That: Navigating Change in Nonprofit Settings

    Tuesday, June 18, 2024 at 12:00 PM until 1:00 PMCentral Daylight Time UTC -05:00

    Change represents the unknown and often tests our sense of comfort, safety and security. Change challenges what we know and like. Change can be complex however, with proper management, change can break down the complex into simple processes. Change Management is a strategic process that organizations use to prepare for and implement change. It involves tools to guide communication and decision making about change.

    Case in point, it’s the year 2000, you are sitting at your desk and receive an email inviting you to “click here and sign”. You click the link, read the document [which appears to be legit] and cautiously sign, wondering… “why couldn’t I just download, print and sign [with a pen] like before?” Fast forward to 2024, electronic signature has become a standard for most business transactions. With the demanding pace of time, can you imagine the same signature process from 1999 being as effective in 2024?

    In this webinar we will explore change management tools that help leaders traverse through “denial” of change. Together we will unpack the reasons why change is necessary. You will gain insights on how to detect, understand, support and influence change in your team or organization. By the end of this webinar, you will emerge with a toolkit to become an agent of change.

    This webinar is appropriate for:

    • Entry to mid-level managers interested in learning more about change management theory and tools for nonprofit organizations.
    • Anyone who is currently engaged in or interested in starting the process of change management in their business or team.
    By the end of the webinar, you will:
    • Learn how to identify where, when and why change is needed in a nonprofit setting
    • Recognize your ability to become an agent for change
    • Discover tools and theories on change management
