As a senior-level program leader, you must unite a team across multiple factors, including different subject areas, funding requirements, client expectations, and sites. Clear understanding and buy-in around a shared culture go a long way in ensuring that people feel like they are parts of a cohesive whole while also honoring the unique aspects (assets and challenges) of each program/site.
This course is designed for the leader overseeing a portfolio of programs. Your grants, budgets, and outcomes may or may not intersect, but your ability to work together can make or break your shared ability to achieve impact with your clients and the community.
- Articulating an intentional, shared culture at the departmental (programs) level
- When to manage and when to lead
At the end of this course, you will be able to…
- Describe elements of a healthy departmental or team culture.
- Develop a process for defining or refining an intentional departmental or team culture.

Offered as part of the Certificate of Nonprofit Program Management Essentials, this course is ideal for senior program managers, program directors, and VPs with oversight for a portfolio of programs or a large/complex program with multiple, diverse funding sources, and supervisory responsibility for a larger team.
