All Day EDLI: Building (& Keeping) Your Dream Team

**Open to ALL NCCADV Members interested in strengthening existing & developing new leadership skills.

Building (& Keeping) Your Dream Team

Two of the most common staffing challenges we hear Executive Directors name are finding quality applicants and high turnover.  There are steps and skills that you can use to help address these challenges. During the 2019 EDLI portion of the Membership Meeting Meredith Emmett & Heather Yandow of Third Space Studio will explore the types of leadership choices and skills can help you to build and maintain the team you dream of. Topics will include:

  • Keeping Staff Motivated
  • Hiring and Keeping Superstars
  • Supervising Marginalized Staff

We are offering 2 Tracks of Building (& Keeping) Your Dream Team:

Track 1: Executive Directors (open to current Executive Directors only)

Track 2: Supervisors & Future Leaders (open to all NCCADV Members who are not currently Executive Directors)

Following the training we invite all members to unwind and network at our Annual Membership Meeting Social.
