Succession Planning for NPOs:
Who Has the Keys…and Not Just to the Office?
If you ask people in a non-profit, who holds the keys to their website, they will usually name a single person. If you ask what happens if that person suddenly leaves, who could they turn to, you will usually get a very disturbed deer in the headlight look. For most non-profits their key resource is their people. Yet for a variety of reasons, very few non-profits consider what would happen if a key staff member, board member or volunteer should get sick, no longer be available or decide to leave. Explore the key activities needed to assure the sustainability of a non-profit when it loses key personnel.

Effective Meetings:
Is This Term Really and Oxymoron?
How do you turn “this is a colossal waste of time” meetings into short, focused meetings that produce results? Studies suggest that the average manager will spend as much as 31 hours in unproductive meetings every month. Not hard to believe when you realize that, on average, an employee attends 62 meetings each and every month. Even more important: 91% admit to daydreaming, 47% complain poor meetings are the #1 time-waster in the office, and 39% admit that they have even fallen asleep! Help your people reach a common understanding on what factors influence good and bad meetings.

Social Media:
