Empowering Teams & Fostering Wellness Workshop Series

The urgency and nonstop nature of working in the nonprofit sector has made it famous for creating burnout and straining relationships among and between board and staff.

This begs the question: how can individuals and organizations protect their psychological and emotional wellbeing while continuing to serve their communities?

In a two part interactive series, consultant Lisa Newcomb provides strategies for identifying and alleviating burnout, building healthy relationships, and effectively managing conflict.
