Areas of Training and Development We Offer

Operational Excellence

Operational Excellence courses reflect a variety of process improvement tools, methods, and techniques. Emphasis is placed on social service programming needs including program and event planning, communications, logic models and measurement, staff skill building and human resource management.

Working with People: Staff, Volunteers, and Client Care

Courses in the “working with people” theme build personal, organizational, and community capacity by equipping participants with the skills and strategies to work with colleagues, clients, and volunteers and develop a deeper understanding of themselves.

Organizational Capacity: Strategy & Governance

Courses in organizational capacity focus on strategic organizational management and discuss the role of board governance in formulating, implementing and monitoring an organization’s strategic objectives. Topics cover foundations of social profit governance, board roles and responsibilities, legal liability, and explore best practices, planning processes, and collective impact.

Executive Director Support

Social Profit executive directors (EDs) require an expansive array of skills and competencies. Courses catering to both new and seasoned EDs will increase ED skillset and preparedness, expand the collective knowledge of the social sector, and remove isolating barriers so that EDs successfully carry out their organization’s mission. The Executive Director Elevation program takes support one step further, offering mentorship and collaborative roundtables.
