When it comes to change, most leaders and organizations focus on structures, processes, and systems. Few recognize that without an individual and collective “Mindset for Change and Innovation” their best efforts will fail. This session will show what is really getting in the way; how an intentional and clear focus on what you want rather than on what you are trying to avoid turns insight into actions and actions into breakthrough outcomes.

Using Emotional Intelligence for Successful Communication (Training Industry)

Whether we like it or not, our communication skills are on display in every interaction we have, both personally and professionally. Sometimes, we’re “on,” and we feel like our message is heard the way we intended. Other times, we’re “off,” and we look back wishing we could hit the do-over button. Have you ever considered your emotional intelligence (EI) as a deciding factor of whether you are a successful or unsuccessful communicator? EI skills such as self-regard, emotional expression, optimism and reality testing – to name a few – are keys to creating powerful interactions with others.

Motivating others is like forecasting the weather. You have no idea what may help you prepare or whether you’ll soon be struck by lightning.

Understanding Soft Risk in Volunteer Engagement (VolunteerMatch)

We all worry about the hard risks that can have an impact on our volunteers and the work they do, but too often we don’t think about the soft risk. Soft risks are the attitudes, beliefs and actions that expose our organizations to risks. Those risks may include the actions of staff – both paid and volunteer, interactions on social media, lack of training for leaders and volunteers – leading to risky behavior, and how failing to screen for characteristics or “fit” can open volunteers and the organization up to risk. This webinar is designed to help attendees identify soft risks in their organization and give them the tools to make changes to processes and culture to minimize and address these risks.

Limitless Libraries, Unlimited Potential (Library Journal)

As libraries continue their mission to become community cornerstones, there is a new spirit of cooperation between public and school libraries. Nowhere is this more evident than in Nashville, where Nashville Public Library and Metro Nashville Public Schools have partnered to create the Limitless Libraries cooperative to improve school libraries, resource sharing, and student access to learning materials. The Library Corporation’s CARL•X was selected as the shared ILS at the heart of this project. You’re invited to join TLC and Library Journal for a special webinar to discuss the Limitless Libraries concept and how it could work for your community.

The good news is that the evolution has already begun. Forward looking people from across the nonprofit sector have realized the importance of moving beyond overhead ratios. But how do we get to a critical mass? How can we better educate donors that there is a cost to social change?
