Wright Foundation: The Power of Personal Responsibility

Nonprofit professionals are often challenged to take on problems that seem far greater than themselves. They experience high rates of burnout and staff turnover, and the demands on the organizations continue to grow. How can we more effectively serve our organizations and fulfill our missions when it feels like we take the weight of the world on our shoulders? This lunchtime talk offers an exploration of some of the myths and realities of nonprofit work and examines the patterns that keep us from taking full responsibility for our self-care, our development, and our positive impact as nonprofit professionals. Attend via Webinar or in person at the Wright Foundation, 445 E. Ohio St., Suite 360, Chicago. Wednesday, September 25, 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm.
