This workshop is part of Volunteer Manitoba's new Emerging Leaders Program and is being piloted in Brandon for a reduced rate of $300!

*This workshop runs on April 10, 18 and 25!

Take the next steps to pursue or advance your management career by learning about the knowledge and skills required to excel as a leader in your organization. If you want to rise through the ranks of your organization into management, or if you want to become more effective in your current leadership role, you'll need to cultivate a specialized set of skills and a particular mindset that is needed in today's dynamic non-profit sector.

Leading from Within is a 3-day workshop designed for those who are planning on, or have just begun leading a non-profit program or volunteer team. In this course you will develop skills to prepare you for your new environment and the common pressures faced by the non-profit sector. You will move forward with an informed and strengthened foundation, critical leadership competencies, and new resources that will help strengthen you own leadership journey.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this program, you will be able to:

Explain the environmental forces and pressures that will challenge non-profit leadership in the coming decade
