My guest for this episode is Rebecca Sutherns. Rebecca is an insightful and high energy collaborative strategist. She is a world class facilitator who has served as a trusted advisor to hundreds of mission-driven organizations in Canada and internationally for more than 20 years. Rebecca is a skilled communicator, with a particular gift for helping leaders make wiser decisions faster. She specializes in facilitating strategic planning, stakeholder engagement, strong governance and effective teamwork, and is the author of Nimble: Off Script But Still On Track – a coaching guide for responsive facilitation and more recently Sightline: Strategic plans that gather momentum not dust.
Here’s what to expect during the episode:
- How can we plan at a time with COVID-19 around? Planning doesn’t only have to occur when you know what’s going to happen.
- What does collaborative planning entail? How can it benefit a nonprofit?
- In a nonprofit setting, who collaborates with who?
- The factors to consider when designing a planning process. Understand the output you want, why it matters, who you need to get it, and how to make everything come together.
- There’s no need to have entirely-fixed plans! Organizations need to be structured and flexible at the same time.
