Leadership and Organizational Culture Course Description and Learning Objectives:
This badge provides nonprofit leaders with practical, actionable skills and tools for developing high-performing agencies. Topics include application of proven leadership principles, the value and steps of strategic planning, creating a mission and value driven organization, and managing change within the 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.

Course Expectations:
This course will be very interactive and will rely on the experiences of each participant. Therefore, it's important that all participants are prepared for each session. The following are requirements for each session, and the course as a whole:
• Complete the Course Pre-Assessment at least three days prior to the first session
• Read all required pre-reading assignments before each session – these are short and shouldn’t take much time, but will guide much of the course discussion
• Bring all required materials to each session. If your organization doesn’t have any of the required materials, the facilitator will provide you with samples to use
• Complete the follow up activities after each session and bring questions and concerns to the next session
• Complete the Badge Requirements by the UNA deadline with all required supporting documentation

This course is one of nine UNA Credential offerings. Each course is designed to move your organization to the next level in adopting and following best practices--resulting in a vibrant, sustainable nonprofit. We encourage you to invite staff, volunteers, and board members to accompany you. Expanded participation broadens perspective, builds cooperation, and lightens the workload. UNA's Credential in Leadership and Organizational Culture provides state-of-the-art information condensed into two days of classroom instruction taught by our Subject Matter Expert, Sonya Martinez-Ortiz. You’ll take this deeper understanding back to your organization and begin to apply it to your policies and practices. Then you'll reconvene with our Subject Matter Expert to workshop your practices and ask questions specific to your organization. Once you’ve documented best-practices at your organization, your organization earns the Leadership and Organizational Culture Badge.
