Masterclass: Shifting the Curve - for consultants, trainers & facilitators of others

Friday 12 April 2019

Facilitators and consultants need to have a deep understanding of their own practice to be genuinely transformative and to effectively support not for profit organisations operating in an increasingly complex environment.  This day is designed especially for those whose professional mission is to support not for profit organisations to make a difference.

Together we’ll explore what effective organisational development looks like in the not for profit sector, understand capacity building through a leadership development lens, and draw on both theory and our collective experience to highlight good practice, including:

 ·       Models of capacity building unique to the NZ context

·       Effectively engaging with groups to ensure they get what they need

·       Appreciate Inquiry and Strengths-based approaches

·       Tools for coaching & mentoring

·       Facilitating groups to achieve their highest potential

The day promises to significantly ‘sharpen the edge’ of your practice as a facilitator/consultant, bringing not only new insights but implementable tools and approaches to your work with others.

Sandy Thompson, Garth Nowland-Foreman and Aly McNicoll are Directors, consultants, and trainers at LEAD. They have each worked in the sector for over three decades, supporting leaders and Boards of not for profit organisations, and together with the rest of the LEAD team offer over a century of sector expertise.
