In an effort to assist nonprofits with capacity building, the Scott County Community Foundation will be hosting quarterly lunch and learn sessions. Board members, volunteers and staff of nonprofit organizations are highly encouraged to attend.
The third session in the series, “High Trust Leadership – The Heart and Soul of Success” will be held Tuesday, June 11 from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. at. the Lifelong Learning Center. Who trusts you? Trust is now known to be the hidden variable that affects all aspects of our lives. Personal relationships, our success in the workplace, even how we feel about ourselves, are influenced by whether or not we are trusted. Trust should no longer be considered a soft social virtue. To be successful in all aspects of life, we must consider trust as currency. Based on the national bestseller, “The Speed of Trust – The One Thing That Changes Everything,” by Stephen M.R. Covey, this fast-paced, interactive workshop outlines practical examples of how greater trust produces better results.
The last session in the series will be “Crucial Conversations: Learn to Successfully Navigate the Conversations You are Avoiding” on Sept. 12, 2019. These workshops will be led by nonprofit consultant June Miller, who brings more than 20 years of experience in corporate and nonprofit training.
“We are pleased to continue our nonprofit workshops for the third year,” said Community Foundation Executive Director Jaime Toppe. “We’ve really seen a growth in local nonprofits as they implement ideas they’ve learned, and they enjoy the networking provided through the sessions.”
“I advise staff and volunteer board members to support your organization by attending,” said Toppe. “Our grants committee will look favorably upon organizations that apply for funding from the Community Foundation, and have shown a desire to build their organization’s capacity through attendance at these sessions.”
The cost for attending is $10 per person and includes lunch. Registration is due one day prior to the session, and can be made by calling the Scott County Community Foundation at 812-752-2057 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
