A Leap of Imagination: Fueling Growth by Investing in Talent
Nonprofits often struggle to build a team equipped to solve problems at the scale that they exist. Talent and capacity investments can be unpopular. Stretched for time and resources, building a strong, unique culture can easily fall to the bottom of their priority list. Constantly playing financial “defense” can be demoralizing.
In this keynote, Billy Shore, Founder and CEO of the national nonprofit Share Our Strength, will share how the organization embarked on a period of rapid growth and impact by investing in talent and culture at a time when industry trends were moving in the opposite direction.
Attendees will have the opportunity to:
- Learn how Share Our Strength created a culture that attracts top talent and cultivates individuals’ strengths
- Understand how Share Our Strength connects capacity and impact
- Hear how imagination and setting bold goals can fuel growth
- Find ways to play financial “offense” by becoming more market-oriented and market-directed
