Every organization has board or staff members that possess financial credentials and/or experience and are charged with the primary responsibility of reporting or managing the financial matters of the nonprofit.  However, board and staff members whose expertise is other than financial still need the ability to monitor the financial condition of the organization and be in a position to ask questions and determine if the organization has the resources to carry out its program goals and strategies.  This is an introductory course in how to read Financial Statements for those who are not finance or accounting professionals.
Attendees will learn:

Once you know your personality style, you will then learn how to motivate any group based on the 7 secrets of influencing people. We will discuss how to tailor these “secrets” to fit each personality style. We will end the session by learning about goal setting and how to set your goals based on who you are and how you work – making you much more likely to attain your goals.
