On June 11, The Strategy Group held its first leadership workshop at the Darien Community Association for 22 executive directors and upper level managers. We explored leadership styles, how to build a successful team, and handling conflict and having difficult conversations. Executive leaders — Mike Duggan from Domus, Nancy von Euler from Horizons at NCCS, and Alan Mathis from LifeBridge Community Services, Inc. — joined us for an engaging panel discussion on how the nonprofit landscape is changing and to share their thoughts and advice on what makes for a successful leader. Said one participant, “I learned a lot about my work style and how I can work with others, as well as what I need to be aware of in terms of my own style.” We look forward to hosting more workshops like these in the future.
