Developing a High Performing Nonprofit Team

If your organization only takes advantage of one professional development training per year … this is the one you won’t want to miss!


Discounts available for Santa Clara County nonprofits. (Details Below)




An effective team is a great asset to your organization; an ineffective one can damage productivity and morale, and can be detrimental to your long term organizational health. Teams are made up of individuals with different work experience and backgrounds, each with his or her own particular working style and expertise. Learn how to use an understanding of individuals’ social styles and values to create better teams, leverage assets, and help existing teams work together more effectively. Participants will discover ways to identify barriers, such as implicit vs. explicit agreements, explore how to use team charters to set up your team for success, as well as tips for great team meetings. You must register in groups of at least two team members … we encourage full team participation for maximum impact!

Intended Audience: Nonprofit Teams; including Executive Directors, managers, and supporting staff.


  • Understand values and different social styles in the work place and how they affect the way people work together
