With Gail Bower

This workshop has been cancelled. Gail will be speaking to Berkshire County Executive Directors at an upcoming Peer Group meeting. Email elizabeth@npcberkshires.org for details.


If you’re like most nonprofit executives, one of the biggest obstacles you face while running your organization is the present level of uncertainty. What do you do with all the moving parts of a pandemic? How do you get your arms around all the variables well enough to make progress on your organization’s strategy and mission?


Rather than play whack-a-mole with all these uncertainties, let’s get a grip on them. Join strategist Gail Bower for a future-focused workshop.  Learn the techniques that you can use with your board, staff, and community to crank up the creativity and slash the stress.


You’ll learn

  • Why being able to peer into the future is so important to your strategy and leadership.
  • How to identify trends that could help or hinder your future.
  • How to use a technique that deepens your awareness of the potential impact of possible futures.


Work with your peers to expand your understanding of the world around you and lessen the anxiety of uncertainty by applying a creative approach and your own imagination.


Who should attend?

  • Nonprofit CEOs and Executive Directors
  • Business leaders who serve on nonprofit boards
