Meetings & Training:

Community Impact: Using an Outcome Framework for the Highest Return in Human Gain, Featuring Debra B. Natenshon
You volunteer and do good work, but how do you define success and how do you quantify the results of your efforts in ways that transcend the anecdotal success story? How do you articulate the impact that your efforts are having on the quality of life in your community? With lasting community impact as our goal, we need to clearly define, track and rollup results from our efforts and dollars. Adopting an outcomes framework can help you shift from an expectation to an outcome mindset and ground your efforts.

This webinar, available on February 13, simplifies the often complex notion of Outcome Management by using relevant real-life examples and interactive dialogue with participants, and it will help you make the ‘link’ between what you do and what you achieve. Click here to register.
