The Eastern West Virginia Community Foundation presents two to four Community Workshops & Nonprofit Training Programs annually. 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. We have offered one Community Workshop and one Nonprofit Training Program to date in 2017 and will present a Grant Writing Workshop in the fall.
Our most recent program was an Action Learning Workshop that brought executive staff and board leaders from eight area nonprofit organizations together for a half-day experience that was facilitated by Action Learning Coaches Jeff Feldman and Carol deLaski. Two participants from each nonprofit (one staff leader and one board member) worked to identify and solve real world problems facing their organization. CEOs were grouped together with Coach Feldman and Board Presidents worked with Coach deLaski during the morning session, then joined 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.
