April 15th and 16th Sessions - Impacting Board and Staff Relationships to Further Mission

Susan Newton of Development Strategies Plus will present:


Impacting Board & Staff Relationships

To Further Mission


When was the last time your board and staff participated in a training experience that was relevant to their nonprofit work as well as their personal lives? That was useful and fun? That increased awareness of self and others?


On April 15th and 16th, Susan Newton will lead a session that permits your board and staff members to better understand and value their individual strengths and unique gifts. Through thoughtful exploration of predictable patterns--or types--of behavior, program participants acquire useful insights that enhance their personal and professional communications, cooperation and productivity.


The MBTI, a validated self-report questionnaire, is the most widely used instrument for understanding personality similarities and differences in the world. Based on Carl Jung's theory of psychological type, the MBTI reports individual preferences for energy, information gathering, decision-making, and lifestyle.


Once participants sign up, you’ll be given instructions as to how to access the online assessment, which takes no more than 5 minutes. There is no charge to do this. With this information, Susan will look at participants in each session as an “organization” and review how participants complement one another along with how best to overcome differences in fostering positive working relationships.


It is important for all participants to take the MBTI assessment - even if you have taken it before – in order for the sessions to be active, learning moments.
