Growing the Decision-Making Skills of Your Employees to Achieve Scale

Not-for-profit organizations rarely possess the financial resources they need, and yet they often fail to fully utilize a point of significant leverage: the decision-making capabilities of their employees. Organizations that hold decisions tight to a select number of senior people are missing a significant opportunity to utilize the intellectual, leadership, and emotional resources of their staff. Centralized decision-making limits innovation, increases turnover, and stifles leadership development.

Please join us for Growing the Decision-Making Skills of Your Employees to Achieve Scale, a not-for-profit presentation and Q&A for HR staff, CEOs, COOs, and VPs of social sector organizations, co-sponsored by Commongood Careers and Empowering Work Practices.

In this engaging session we will discuss:

  • The six warning signs of concentrated decision-making
  • The cost of maintaining the decision-making status quo within your organization
  • Identifying decision-making challenges in your organization
  • Determining and prioritizing the most important and complex work decisions
  • How to safely advocate for decision-making responsibility

There is no cost to attend this event!  We do appreciate your RSVP so we can plan for the appropriate number of attendees.
