UNA’s Leadership and Organizational Culture course is an integral component of the Nonprofit Organizational Credential program. This  program provides a path for nonprofits to develop best practices in areas critical to nonprofits – including leadership and organizational culture. Learn more here.

The Leadership and Organizational Culture course provides nonprofit leaders with practical, actionable skills and tools to use to develop high-performing organizations. This course focuses on the identification and application of proven leadership principles, the steps of strategic planning, how to create a mission and value driven organization, and tactics for leading change within an organization. At the completion of the course, the participant will:

• Gain a deep understanding of organizational culture and how different aspects of the organization affect the culture.
• Integrate proven principles of leadership into all levels of the organization’s leadership
• Understand the value of strategic planning and demonstrate proficiency using tools to conduct the strategic planning process.
• Relate all organization activities to the organization’s mission and determine if certain activities or processes are obsolete and hindering the organization’s culture.

The course consists of three phases.

Phase One: The initial part of Leadership and Organizational Culture consists of two classroom sessions. A Subject matter expert will engage you and other nonprofit professionals with an intermediate level of material presented in class and as homework. You’ll work with other nonprofit professionals and emerge with a deeper perspective on Leadership and Organizational Culture.
Phase Two: In the second part of the course, you will begin to apply what you’ve learned to your organization. You’ll participate in a workshop – which lets you consult with our subject matter expert to fine tune your policies, procedures and practices.
Phase Three: After the workshop, you will continue to work on your documentation. Your SME remains available, offering guidance and advice as needed and standing by to review your documentation. A passing review earns your organization the credential - presented in the form of a badge. Earning a badge for your organization is a statement on your dedication and on your organization’s commitment to build organizational capacity.
We strongly encourage you to invite staff, volunteers, and board members to accompany you on this training adventure. Expanded participation broadens perspective, builds cooperation, and lightens the workload. (The fee for additional staff members is $25 for members and $75 for nonmembers.)
