PRO 230 | Everyday Leadership

New to managing others? Leading a small team or task force, especially of part-time or volunteer staff? Or, are you a team of one, trying to manage up and across the org chart?

Many programs have lean teams, often led by coordinators and managers who may have come out of or currently still involved in direct service delivery themselves, and could be supervising former or current peers. This course is designed for the tactical, coordinator/manager leadership level at nonprofits:

  • Someone who supervises a small or diverse program staff of a mix of full-time, part-time/hourly, contracted, and volunteer team members, with varying levels of program allocation on any given day.
  • Someone who both manages and implements the work of a program, project, or initiative, needing to manage up and across to accomplish goals.

KEY CONCEPTS

  • Recruitment and retention of program team members
  • Motivation, and working toward common goals
  • Managing up
  • Managing across (at a peer level and with other teams)
  • Finding chances for informal leadership (such as a staff-training or staff-recognition committee), stretch opportunities, or special projects—without burning yourself out

COURSE OBJECTIVES

At the end of this course, you will be able to…
  • Give examples of successful applicable models for volunteer recruitment and retention.
  • Examine your role as a path of information between the greater organization and your team, especially part-time staff members and volunteers.
  • Identify your People Style, and recognize how best to work with team members in consideration of their personality types and leadership styles.

AUDIENCE

Offered as part of the Certificate of Nonprofit Program Management Essentials, this course is ideal for program coordinators and managers with less than five years of experience in program management, and oversight of one program  with one or two funding sources and a small team (typically fewer than five staff and volunteers).
