Developing Your Grit and Resilience (In-Person)

April 16th (Thursday) from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Course Description...  What role do Grit and Resilience play in Non-Profit Leadership?  From our studies and experience we would say a great deal.  We all know the extreme challenges we face with non-profit leadership – decreasing budgets, challenges to maintaining top talent, emotionally taxing world-changing causes, high turnover and high burnout.  These are just a few of the challenges that we as non-profit leaders face on a daily basis.  So, what do we have to rely on to help us carry on each and everyday?  Enter Grit and Resilience.  These two factors have been identified in many leaders and top performers and contribute more to performance than raw talent.  Grit is a measure of passion and performance for long term goals.  Grit is getting up off the mat, grit is going into work each and every day (and sometimes every night), grit is never eating the marshmallow.  In this class we will examine the role of grit in our lives as non-profit leaders and what it has to remind and encourage us about our role and model for leaders of our organization and our people.
