Four-Part Presentation:
How to Make Your Employees Happy & Save Your Organization Money

Instructed by Kris Boesch, CEO of management consultant firm Choose People.
Duration is one hour per session.

In this series of four highly interactive and energized webinars, Kris Boesch will weave valuable content, enlightening stories and tangible tools to improve your organizational culture. Boesch, who approaches company culture as the most paramount asset to an organization's financial success, provides participants with specific, accessible, no-cost ways to create a happy company culture. Whereas other programs miss the mark by only talking about employee "satisfaction" or "engagement", Boesch takes company culture to a whole new level well beyond compensation, HR practices and "perks". You will not only be able to take her doable best practices and lessons learned and implement them within your organization to see immediate results, you will also have an opportunity to submit your specific cultural dilemma or question and have Boesch address it.

Competition for dwindling resources is more ferocious than ever - and is threatening to become more so. It's not enough to simply be good at what you do. Today, you need to differentiate your non-profit from other organizations by branding who you are, what you do, how you do it - and, most importantly, why anyone should care enough to support you!

This webinar will bring you beyond marketing and advertising and help you understand how quality leadership and staff, accountable and ethical behavior, and your organization's willingness, ability and commitment are at the heart of your brand identity. Its core objective is to help you clearly define, promote and protect your brand, as well as create a plan to incorporate cost-effective, practical branding elements into your organization's everyday business activities. Bottom line: A well-respected and trusted brand reputation makes raising funds a lot easier.
