Logic Models: Road Maps to Nonprofit Success (HBG0077)
 

Presenters

Heather Goldsworthy, PhD, and Christina Reardon, MSW, LSW

Overview

Reaching a destination is much easier if you have a road map to guide you. Without a map, you might make wrong turns, take unnecessary detours and become completely lost. In the same way, a logic model helps your organization stay on track as it pursues its programmatic goals. A logic model provides a graphic representation of your program so you can concretely describe how program resources and activities lead to desired outcomes. This workshop will explore logic models and how they can be used to explain your program to others (including potential funders), evaluate your program’s success and plan for the future. You’ll also have a chance to practice creating a basic logic model for your organization or tweaking an existing one. This workshop is designed for representatives of new or emerging nonprofits or more-experienced nonprofit professionals who want a refresher on the topic.

Objectives

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the basic components of a logic model

  • Use a logic model to describe how program resources and activities lead to desired outcomes

  • Explain logic models’ benefits and limitations

  • Create basic logic models for their programs or organizations

I Got a Promotion! Now What? (HBG0080)
 

Presenter

Myka Piatt

Overview

Taking the leap into your first supervisory job can be exciting and scary.  All too often in the nonprofit worlds, new supervisors are left on their own trying to figure out how to make the transition successfully.  This workshop will introduce participants to a strengths-based approach to leadership which is rooted in empathy, cultural humility, empowerment, critical self-reflection, and genuine mutual respect.  Through discussion and small group activities, participants will compare and contrast the strengths-based approach with a more traditional command and control management approach, reflect on their own strengths and opportunities, and identify powerful questions which support mutually respectful relationships.
