Round Table: “Undoing Past Harms” @ Webinar
Sep 28 @ 8:30 am – 9:30 am

For the remainder of the year we will be exploring the theme of the senior leader’s role in “Undoing Past Harms… While Leading Future Strategy.”

Many leaders, whether new or seasoned, are faced with undoing harms created by systemic injustices or former leaders of their organizations.

For example:
– are you having a difficult time engaging former or new staff because of past grievances?
– are you attempting to articulate a strategy for the future yet mired by ingrained harmful cultural norms?
– are you unintentionally perpetuating cultural biases?

This is a big topic which deserves time to explore and that’s why we are dedicating the next three month’s to discuss this theme.

Round Tables for Senior Leaders are designed to benefit senior leaders from creative businesses and nonprofit organizations to convene with peers to discuss ideas, context, and emotions; to make sense; and re-orient their visions and actions.

Our facilitator is Myla Skinner, Founder and Managing Partner of Quarter Five which supports businesses and organizations as they navigate complex and consequential change such as Executive Leadership Transitions and Team Restructures; Diversity, and Equity, and Inclusion Design and Implementation. Myla has an unfaltering commitment to respect, equity, thoughtfulness, and intentionality and grounds her work in “calling people in and not out.”

Save the dates of Tuesday October 26 and Tuesday November 23 for two additional Round Tables exploring this theme.

Learning Lab: Generating Revenue by Creating Operational Efficiencies @ Webinar
Nov 10 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

Generating Revenue by Creating Operational Efficiencies (webinar)

With limited ability to generate NEW revenue, can you find a greater margin of profit by creating operational efficiencies?

Join us for this participatory workshop focusing on creative and innovative solutions for your business or organization to generate more earned revenue by maximizing operational efficiencies.

Topics Include:

  • Conducting an operational audit – assessing income and expense to ensure sustainability and growth
  • The role of values and organization culture in operational efficiency
  • Service areas that can be outsourced or shared to minimize expenses
  • Building Consensus and Change Management

Even before the pandemic, organizations struggled with maximizing operational efficiencies. The economic setbacks from COVID-19 including restrictions on gatherings, changes in consumer behavior (voluntary or otherwise), and severe unemployment have taken a devastating toll on our sector- further impacting earned revenue which has now made it even more imperative to revisit operations efficiencies for organizations.
