Registration is currently closed for our 2022 Manager Cohort. However, this is a program we customize and offer to individual organizations, as well! Read below to see if this type of service could benefit your team.
The Manager Cohort is an exclusive group learning experience for nonprofit managers consisting of facilitated content and skills practice in a supportive, community-oriented environment. Did you know that the biggest factor in an organization’s long-term success is its managers? And that 70% of employee engagement depends on the manager? Yet, most managers receive little to no training in how to manage employees, let alone effectively. These statistics from Gallup are staggering, and true!
In our current climate and rising turnover, it’s more important than ever before to invest in manager training. The Manager Cohort is designed to help nonprofit managers learn and implement the skills they need to be successful as individuals as well as contribute to their organization’s success. In addition, participants will build a community of support with fellow managers that will last well beyond the end of the sessions.
- Topics covered: Each week, the facilitator will provide content and prompt development around each of the following topics: 1) Developing your leadership style. 2) Creating a positive team culture. 3) Managing conflict and difficult conversations. 4) Leading with an equity and inclusion lens. 5) Increasing employee engagement. And much more!
- Sessions: Sessions will run every other week at 8:30-11:30 a.m. for a total of five sessions. Sessions will be conducted via Zoom and will include facilitator-led content, group discussion, and peer-to-peer skill-building. Participants will gain access to an online learning platform to house agendas, tools, and resources provided throughout the program.
- Participation: This unique opportunity is for nonprofit managers who are eager to grow, engage, and develop skills to become the best version of themselves as managers. Multiple managers from an organization are welcome and encouraged to register.
- Capacity: Capacity is limited to 17 participants, and participants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis – see registration information below! Questions? Please email Olivia@NewChapterCoach.com.
