Grantmaking that truly supports nonprofits and the communities they serve requires a deep understanding of organizational culture and its connection to nonprofit success. But how we initiate conversations about culture within our organizations, and how we make the connection to our external work, is not always clear.
Through individual reflection, peer coaching and small group discussion, this intimate, hands-on workshop will help you understand and begin to assess your current organizational culture and how it impacts your effectiveness and the success of your nonprofit partners.
Presented by GEO's Kristen Scott Kennedy and Amy Shields, this workshop will allow you the opportunity to dig into a particular challenge you’re currently facing, share candidly and openly with peers, and help one another identify pathways forward. Beyond assessing and understanding your organizational culture, you’ll also identify several next steps you can take to shift unproductive culture or tend to productive elements of organizational culture.
We'll tackle the essential elements of shaping a productive culture, helping you to:
- Understand GEO’s culture framework and where your organization falls on that continuum;
- Develop a better understanding of your existing organizational culture;
- Explore your current and aspired organizational culture related to a specific organizational goal, challenge or opportunity; and
- Identify next steps to support the culture necessary to support your organization’s mission.
This workshop will be most beneficial if you have some responsibility for shaping organizational culture, are beginning to think intentionally about culture and want to shape culture in service of your organization’s mission and goals. Join us for this dynamic workshop to identify a path forward for creating a productive culture that supports nonprofit success.
