Nonprofit leadership has been heavily influenced by heroic models of individual leadership, while studies have demonstrated that shared leadership and participatory management results in greater impact, higher quality decisions, increased innovation and creatively, and increased mutual accountability. This highly engaging and hands-on workshop will help participants learn about the range of participatory management and shared leadership models being used by other organizations and how to apply to their teams and organizations for greater impact.

Participants will:

  1. Discover different shared leadership and participant models and how they can benefit your nonprofit’s effectiveness and community impact
  2. Choose a shared leadership model for your team that fits your mission and team goals.
  3. Learn how to create more democratic and equitable decision-making within your organization and teams to increase mutual ownership and accountability.
