Team & Morale Building During Challenging Times



As nonprofit professionals, COVID-19 is challenging us like never before. As a group, we will celebrate the new skills, habits and heroic efforts being put forth by direct support professionals and their leadership teams. During this workshop, you will assess your own morale level as well as that of your work teams. We will examine new conflicts that may be keeping some of our staff from bringing their “best selves” to the work environment and we’ll identify ten ways of boosting morale. Participants will have the opportunity to add to the list. Our emphasis will be on stating positive intent in a respectful manner best matched to the mission of the program, organization and people being supported.



  1. Learn or review steps to building positive and effective work teams
  2. Learn three strategies that will enhance positive communication with people of different personality types.
  3. Create a list of at least three new morale boosters to keep staff both motivated and to reinforce their inherent value to your organization
