Short & Sweet

The sessions take place within the work day, every Thursday from 9:30-11:30, for 8 weeks from February 3rd to March 27th. There is no homework and no pre-work.  

Everything your organization needs takes place within these two hours.

Practical & Pragmatic

All sessions will take place over zoom.  

We require three key team members participate directly and form a plan. Together you can make decisions and implement plans.   

We recommend:  

The executive director  

The program manager  

A member of the board  

First Hour 

Delivery of material by the facilitator, with break-out room work and live interaction from participants.  

Second Hour 

purely practical implementation of the tool through work with your team. The idea is that you will have begun to fix an issue/implement a tool into your organization within the two hours, not after the meeting or at some yet to be planned date.
