Confessions of an Executive Director Series

January 14, 2021 @ 9:00 am 11:00 am

SOLD OUT! Please contact the Community Foundation to be put on a waitlist.

When you became an Executive Director, was there a manual detailing all of your responsibilities? Did somebody leave you a playbook or the recipe for success? Probably not.

What’s the solution? Spend some time with Kari Anderson, Principal at Incite! Consulting. As a former executive director, she has tips and tools that will help you thrive as a leader. In three two-hour sessions, you’ll dive into roles and responsibilities that executive directors juggle in order to ensure organizational success. Importantly, you will leave each session with a framework to organize and prioritize where and how to spend your time!
