Strategic Leadership for Nonprofit Leaders

June 29 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Junior League of Annapolis (JLA) and the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County (CFAAC) invites nonprofit leaders, including executive directors, board chairs, and heads or chairs of large departments or committees to attend Strategic Leadership for Nonprofit Leaders. Participants will learn what strategic leadership is and what it is not, examine their motivations and their strengths, and build their own personal strategic leadership map for organizational and personal success.

This session will explain the relationship between personal leadership strengths and organizational strengths and culture. Participants will learn how to connect their own personal Strategic Leadership skills with the organization’s strategic plan.

Participants will learn about and discuss the different strengths that everyone brings to the organization and how leaders lean into their strengths and think less about their weaknesses. Individuals will then use McLelland’s Model of Motivation to determine their strengths and their own leadership motivation within their organizations. These individual strengths and motivations will then be used to identify personal desired outcomes for the organization and to build a plan to use these outcomes in a strategic manner.

Join us to learn why it is so important to have a plan for strategic leadership that not only steers the organization towards success in stable environments but also allows for flexibility when conditions are more precarious and unbalanced.

Speaker, Joann Vaughan, will share examples from her 15-year leadership of the Maryland Federation of Art (MFA), when she built the organization from a small local arts organization to a national exhibitor of current work by living artists. She will also convey how her experience with Strategic Leadership helped her manage MFA during COVID.
