Do you feel you’re squeezing all your effort, energy, and resources into delivering programs and services without a moment to take a breath and look at your internal capacity?
Imagine if you could step back from the day-to-day operations and gain clarity on where to best build and strengthen your organization.
This full-day workshop supports you to diagnose your organization’s capacity in governance, management, financial resources, and administrative systems.
