Long Game Leadership – Taking on Supersized Issues through Inclusion, Influence, and Adaptability – Francisco Gónima

April 12 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


The issues of our times are large, complex, and interdependent. No one agency, and no one leader, can go it alone and succeed. Today’s relevant leader is expected to be as effective at collective impact and coalition building outside of their agency as they are at excellent management inside of it. So what does it take to be an ‘adaptive leader’, taking on complex issues in our community without getting overwhelmed? This course will introduce a framework built on inclusion, influence, big visions and healthy boundaries that are critical to the success of transformative leaders. You will:

  • Understand technical vs. adaptive challenges, and the type of problem solving each requires
  • Distinguish between ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ power and which is most valuable for leaders
  • Identify your spheres of influence, and how to scale your ability to mobilize support
  • Learn what it takes to recruit and retain coalitions in tackling complex problems
  • Create a personal action plan to scale your community relationships and impact

Who should attend: Nonprofit Management Program participants, CEOs, executives, senior managers and those in community liaison roles as well as those who engage in cross-sector issues/collaborations those who need to evolve from internal managers to community impact leaders and those who want to cultivate their networks of influence
