Leadership Workshops

Friday afternoon will provide opportunities to hear from the current Nollau Leadership Institute class as they present their final projects on leadership:

Breaking Bread: Creating Community

Breaking Bread: Creating Community is a business concept formulated by the Nollau leadership institute group Earth, Wind, and Fire. The business is designed for residential nonprofit organizations that have specific resources available but it can also be adaptable to other agencies to aid in recouping vital donations and income for their programs. In this initiative youth residential agencies will cultivate the necessary ingredients to bake specialty breads while using clients, volunteers, and other viable stakeholders to distribute the breads for purchase. “Breaking Bread: Creating Communities will be manufacturing several varieties of loaves of baked bread including: Carrot, Zucchini, Yeast, and Corn Bread. The overwhelming majority of the ingredients for these breads will be cultivated by clients of participating social service agencies and all of the breads will be organic. Product packaging will include brief overviews of the involved agencies and will illustrate where the majority of the proceeds will be utilized. Additionally, strategic Hotline Numbers will be placed on the packaging so that customers of the products can find  necessary resources if they are in need of services. 

Connecting to a Diversified World: Finding Connections in Unexpected Places

As advances in technology and social media forge new forms of communication, the three main elements of a message are often not present, resulting in unintended conflict. Every organization at some point in time has encountered conflicts or dis-connects related to miscommunication. In these changing times how do we identify if our failure to connect is related to generational or racial differences or being geographically dispersed as we learn to communicate through new technology. If you want to learn how your organization can keep pace with the changing times and respond to the changing demographics join us as we explore the elements of clear communication, the role of active listening and how working through conflict can lead to a positive outcome that can build new and stronger relationships with those we serve.

Riding the Wave in an Ocean of Change

Organizations are in a constant state of flux. Sometimes change comes at us, and we struggle to know how to respond. There are also times when change is necessary and desirable, but if we are not the ones in charge, we are unsure if we can make a difference. This workshop invites participants to “be the change” they wish to see in their workplace. Join us for a lively conversation about teamwork and leadership. Imagine how you can change the culture of your organization through better listening. Find out how you can re-direct even the most negative energy toward the betterment of your organization. Discover how you can ride the tidal wave of change in a new way, and feel more connected to your organization’s mission in the process.
