Professional development is a critical tool to keeping employees engaged, excited and productive. Statistics show that the cost of employee turnover is up to 16% of the employee’s annual income. Out of the box trainings or conferences can instill some great lessons but a customized leadership program goes one step further to truly ignite excitement and engagement from your employees.

Having a customized professional development program brings a multitude of benefits to your organization including…

  • Increasing subject matter expertise across areas of focus to ensure employees are equipped with the knowledge and skills required to excel in their roles.
  • Staying on trend with current, relevant research findings that encourage ongoing learning.
  • Empowering leaders by identifying challenges and allowing space to proactively solving them.
  • Endearing employees to the organization by showing them their talents and voices are heard and valued.
  • Reducing turnover through authentic inclusivity and enhanced opportunities to generate employee engagement and excitement. 

The InPursuit Team customizes face to face, hybrid or virtual professional development workshops that address your organization’s specific challenges and aspirations. 

The InPursuit Emerging Leaders Program is targeted at early career leaders looking to perfect their management and communication skills, while amplifying their impact within and outside the organization. 

  • 12 Week Format. Although adjustable, this is the standard timeframe for group coaching and highest impact. The InPursuit Team will conduct weekly synchronous meetings to deeply engage staff in the curriculum as well as discuss workplace triumphs and challenges.
  • Customized Curriculum. Preparatory measures will be taken including a review of any trends in employee behavior challenges or turnovers as well as the implementation of a pre-survey specifically focused on gauging employee morale, productivity and workplace conflict, among other topics.
  • Expectation Alignment. The InPursuit team uses an assessment tool given to both managers and employees and gauges their psychological contract alignment. If there are vast differences in expectations, we can set up mitigating conversations that are shown to greatly improve morale and reduce turnover.
  • Extracurricular Engagement. The InPursuit Team will also set up a forum (slack, social media – whatever is the norm) where employees can post pictures/videos of their outside work from the weekly curriculum. Connecting in a fun way will make this feel more like a working escape and not an added burden.

Your board is an essential component of your nonprofit and provides much-needed guidance and insight. However, mistakes in governance are serious and could end up harming your organization. From failing to fully understand the tax legislation and rules that a nonprofit must follow, to airing board grievances and divisions outside of the boardroom, there are major mistakes to avoid.

On the other hand, high quality governance done right has the ability to truly accelerate your impact. The InPursuit Team offers a variety of custom offerings to help cultivate the meaningful experiences for both Board members and the organizations they serve.

Examples of Board Development Services include:

Board Development Workshops. In these workshops, we review various models of nonprofit governance, industry trends and best practices, ways to overcome pitfalls and  challenges, as well as individualized ways to use Board member talents on behalf of the organization.

Board Onboarding Materials Creation or Update.  Whether you need a full Board onboarding created or just an update to an existing process, the InPursuit Team can assist in making the first interaction between you and your board the best interaction.

Board Strategic Plans. Similar to a full organizational strategic plan, we use a multi-step process to set Board specific priorities and then create a roadmap for Board members to follow to bring those goals to fruition.

Customized Training. We are available to design custom half or full-day training sessions to overcome a specific board challenge or to simply bring your board from mediocre to world-class.
