Impact Data Nonprofit Quarterly Circles
Connect + Collaborate
If you are responsible for demonstrating impact within your organization – we know your job isn’t easy. The data you’re making sense of can feel overwhelming to access; let alone analyze. It can also be a very lonely role, for many, there is only one person, like you, responsible.
Join us for a virtual coffee to tackle strategies that bring clarity and simplicity to your world, help you feel inspired and uplifted by data – versus encumbered by it. You’ll connect with local like-minded professionals at nonprofits experiencing the same challenges and have the opportunity to share resources and tools that work.

Why Surveys Matter and Why They Aren’t Enough: All the A's to Your Q's
Join Leadership Council and Measurement Resources’ president and founder, Sheri Chaney Jones, for a webinar. This workshop, “Why Surveys Matter and Why They Aren’t Enough,” will explore best practices for survey design, traps to avoid, and what to do with unexpected information that surveys can reveal.
About the Workshop:
Measurement Resources uses a mixed-methods approach to social sector research. This work typically begins with secondary research and a stakeholder survey. But we don’t stop there—we move on to qualitative research, which includes focus groups and interviews. So why are surveys such a critical step in the process, and why aren’t they enough?
Survey design is part art and part science. However, surveys are just the first layer of the investigation. They identify the themes that lead to the root causes or underlying practices and policies that may be significantly impacting quality, perceptions, and ultimately, outcomes.
In this workshop, we’ll explore how surveys are part and parcel to the continuous improvement process, and how to implement findings into your workflows or program design. From sharing real-life case studies and bringing more than 20 years of experience in the high-performance measurement arena, Sheri will help put your organization on the right path for its next in-depth investigation.
Sustaining the Mission: Nonprofit Combinations and Other Strategic Partnerships
Given current challenges facing community-based nonprofits, it is increasingly important for leadership to assess how more formal partnerships, including strategic combinations with other organizations, might help preserve and enhance their missions.
Please join PBPO for this overview of key topics to consider, including:
- Key indicators of organizational health and readiness to collaborate, including cultural components, that boards should consider
- An overview of the exploratory process to determine the desirability of a partnership
- The legal options for structuring a partnership or more formal combination and the benefits and drawbacks of each
This webinar will help leaders assess how their own organization is positioned to face the future, and what they need to do to get ready for the next step.
This webinar is intended for CEOs/Executive Directors, CFOs/Finance execs, COOs, and Board Members.

The Leadership Challenge® 3-day Workshop Experience
The past two years have been extraordinarily challenging for everyone and especially nonprofits. You had to figure out dramatic new ways to serve people, obtain necessary funding and resources, and keep employees. Burnout and fatigue took their toll. Hopefully, the road ahead will be less COVID-impacted, but the number of and intensity of challenges will only continue to grow.
This is why The Leadership Challenge is so important for you as a nonprofit leader right now. It will help you develop ways to find success in spite of the increasing difficulties you face.
- The Practices you will learn are understandable, relevant, and applicable. Those who have already attended the program will tell you that they were able to immediately start leading in better ways.
- The 30 plus years of research supporting this model of leadership continues to this day. There are decades of evidence proving that the program leads to higher results.
- You leave the program with a number of options on how to lead more effectively, not simply with more work to do. It can actually reduce the feelings of overwhelm, which many are facing today.
- It is regarded as one of the premier leadership development programs, available around the world.
The Leadership Challenge® includes a 360 assessment, the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI), which is a simple, 30 question inventory. The feedback it provides is very understandable and usable. It actually provides people with a solid roadmap for change.
This is a great program for a few team members to participate in. Studies show that leadership development helps with employee experience and retention.
We encourage you to respond promptly as the program is limited to 24 participants and a max of 3 people per organization.
