As challenges to manage non-profit organizations increase and evolve, new non-profit managers need to ensure their “managerial toolkit” is full of tools (Super Powers) that equip them to be successful managers.  This workshop is designed to offer practical methods for managing non-profit staff members and will explore the soft skills of management and leadership. 


Participants will learn these four aspects (Super Powers) of being a new manager:

  • X-Ray Vision-Assessing the Strengths of Your Team,
    • Managing an effective team begins with knowing each team member’s strengths.  Participants will learn how to assess each team member to identify their strengths as well as areas for improvement.
  • Enhanced Memory-Effective Performance Management,
    • Once strengths have been identified, it is important to establish clear expectations.  Performance management is best when goals have been discussed and knowing when to make adjustments.
  • Superhuman Strength-Handling Difficult Conversations,
    • There are times when uncomfortable situations occur which necessitate difficult conversations.  Participants will learn how to conduct difficult conversations when expectations have not been met. 
  • Energy Blasts-The Benefits of Rewards and Recognition,
    • What do you need to do to keep your non-profit employees engaged?  Tips on how to reward and recognize successful behavior and the ramifications when this does not occur will be discussed.

Key takeaways:

  • Learning how to establish clear goals for performance and what to do when those goals are not met
  • Understanding the power of rewards and recognition and how employee engagement is impacted
