FLIP (Financial Leadership in Practice) brings leadership teams together to learn and develop strategies that strengthen the link between financial process and community impact. Over the course of a 2-day workshop and three follow-up tutorials with consultant Justin Pollock of OrgForward, leadership teams explore frameworks, tools, and plans that foster stronger conversations among board and staff.
In this course participants will:
–Learn to tie the financial, programmatic, operational, and leadership efforts of the organization together to develop a richer understanding of the organization’s impact to strengthen how financial information is used to support mission-focused decision making.
–Review strategies that ensure that organizational leaders account for and allocate resources to effectively fulfill mission today while also reinforcing sustainability moving forward.
–Work with their leadership team and other peers to develop strategies for implementing change, to strengthen the financial systems, processes, and communications that support organizational success.
–Develop a Financial Leadership Action Plan throughout the seminar, leaving with clear action items and/or next steps to take within the organization(s) they represent
This in-depth program is for leadership teams of at least 2 individuals (board members, executive directors, senior finance, and program leadership) who are seeking to clarify fiduciary responsibilities, create budget processes that are engaging and support sustainability, align financial architecture and systems to outcomes, effectively report and communicate for decision making, and understand and mitigate risk. Registration is limited to twelve organizations.
FLIP consists of two full-day workshops and three separate two-hour tutorials. The full-day workshops will take place October 21st and 22nd, 2019. The three two-hour tutorials will be determined based on participant schedules.
