Session overview: Tips and Techniques to Evolve as a Leader – Moving from Tactical to Strategic
Tailored specifically for individuals working in the fundraising sector, this session offers practical insights and techniques in leading change, effective delegation, strategic communication, performance management, team building, and goal setting within the context of fundraising. Whether you’re a seasoned fundraising manager or an aspiring leader in the field, this workshop provides valuable tools and knowledge to drive success in your fundraising endeavors and advance your career in the nonprofit sector.

In the morning section of this workshop, you will be analyzing how you spend your time and identifying shifts you need to make. You will also be dissecting your approach to change and scoring your performance. You will determine how you could raise the score in both how you lead change and delegate to others. In the afternoon, you will be part of a three round simulation where you work as a team to put a 15 stick model together at ever increasing speed and out of it find applications to take back to the workplace.

Some key learnings from the session will include:

  • Explore the differences between being tactical and strategic and techniques to move yourself along the continuum
  • Determine how to engage others (volunteers, peers, direct reports) in the larger change initiatives you want to help drive
  • Analyze if you are delegating as effectively as you need to be to get the work done and develop others
  • Experience what it is like to be part of a high performance team though a compelling simulation and find ways to take insights back to the office
