Mental Health for Keeping Your Organization Moving Forward
September 7, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$40
It’s not that we don’t know what we need to do to make our nonprofit successful, but instead it’s that we feel overwhelm, stress, and frustration that distract us from taking positive steps forward. These and other negative emotions get in the way of us engaging our brains in a way that allows us to be empathetic, creative, innovative, and forward-thinking. In this workshop we will introduce you to the saboteurs at play in ourselves and in the many stakeholders we work with to see how they impact our motivation, relationships, and outcomes. Using the principles of Positive IntelligenceTM, we will also learn some techniques to respond vs. react to whatever comes your way.
