Help your team to use time effectively and focus on the essential elements of their work.

Most advancement leaders rise into their positions from successful fundraising careers with little or no experience managing teams. You're a leader because you were a great fundraiser. And you were a great fundraiser because you applied rigor and discipline in your schedule and intuited the information and practices needed for success. But how much have you worked to coach others on the rigor and intuition you developed within yourself?

Join us online to learn how to start building in your team the skills that made you such a successful individual contributor:
