Duke University - Continuing Studies: 2022 Nonprofit Capacity Building Training

May 24, 2022
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Instructor: John Curtis, Ph.D., 

Today’s extraordinarily, dynamic environment places unprecedented demands on all types, sizes and ages of nonprofits to change or risk extinction. However, productive change does not happen by accident nor can it be mandated. This will be a fast-paced, interactive and highly relevant course on Change Management designed specifically for nonprofit leaders. This course offers proven, proprietary methodology using six “Change Drivers” to initiate and sustain organizational change to build capacity, ensure continuing relevancy, and assure financial sustainability.

Key Learning Objectives

Participants will:

  • Identify their personal responses to change and how their leadership style impacts their effectiveness as Nonprofit Change Agents
  • Learn how to measure their organization’s change capacity based on six Change Drivers to start change and make it permanent
  • Assess their organization′s current track record of change and identify how to leverage enhancers and mitigate inhibitors that impact its ability to change
  • Develop a concrete, measurable Change Management Plan to ensure successful adoption of change initiatives they begin in their organization
