Building Trust With Your Nonprofit Team @ Online
Jun 6 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Leadership comes with a lot of responsibility and a ton of hard work. It is often also laced with criticism, judgment and condemnation from your team, stakeholders and the community. That constant stream of disdain can impact any leader’s confidence. Studies show the best leaders, those who are effective and have a loyal following, have high levels of engagement with their team. Their team trusts them and respects them. As such, their team works well with the leader to serve the mission of the organization. Many leaders have no idea how to develop that level of trust and respect with their team. The way is to lead with your strength of character. However, we are often not taught though, how to develop our character. In this session you will: Understand why your character matters so much in leadership. Spoiler alert: Look at the comments on social media about leaders who don’t have good character. Learn what impacts others description of your character. Leave with a 3-step strategy for developing your character. This webinar is hosted by CharityVillage.
