Community Workshops & Nonprofit Training Programs are presented by the Eastern West Virginia Community Foundation every year. Whether we partner with other nonprofit organizations or present these ourselves, the Community Foundation works hard to bring quality programs to the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia.
In March of this year, Families Turning led a series of workshops in Harpers Ferry called In Pursuit of Happiness. Thanks to the positive response, work continues to expand the program and present it in other areas of the Eastern Panhandle.
Our next Nonprofit Training Program will be an Action Learning Workshop scheduled for Thursday, July 6th. This half-day experience will be facilitated by Action Learning Coaches Jeff Feldman and Carol deLaski and will be limited to six to eight nonprofit organizations. Two participants from each nonprofit — ideally the CEO/Executive Director and Board President — will work to solve real world problems facing their organization. CEOs will be grouped together with one coach and Board Presidents will work with the other coach during the morning, then join forces at lunch to compare notes and finalize work plans.
Action Learning is a dynamic approach to problem solving and decision-making where team members support one another through the group coaching process while honing their own leadership and teaming skills. Action Learning provides a pathway for individuals, teams, leaders and organizations to successfully adapt, learn, and innovate.
Action Learning Offers:
- Breakthrough Problem-Solving
- Clear-Sighted Decision-Making
- Deepening Understanding of Critical Issues
- Team & Organizational Learning
- Leadership Development
- Cultivation of High Performing Teams
- Skill-Building in Listening, the Use of Powerful Questions and Coaching
As an attendee of this Action Learning Workshop, you are invited to bring an organizational challenge or opportunity to the session and receive free coaching on it via the Action Learning process. You may also choose to participate simply by being a member of one of the Action Learning problem-solving teams. Either way, you will get firsthand experience with this dynamic, interactive group problem solving process designed to create actionable steps and forward momentum, while supporting and enhancing your growth and development as a leader and team member within your organization.
The cost of participating in the four-hour (9:30 AM to 1:30 PM) Action Learning Workshop is $75 for two representatives of the same nonprofit organization. Lunch will be provided.
