Research shows that successful integration of new personnel in any organization starts with strategic and timely onboarding. Failure to cast vision, familiarize your Board with your ministry’s history, educate about the pregnancy center movement, or relay expectations up front will cripple your Board’s leadership long term. Plan for your Board members to serve and steward your ministry effectively by reviewing key strategies and content for successful onboarding.

Are you running to the battle or waiting for it to show up unannounced?
Our clients are watching to see if we run to help them or shrink to the shadows and wait for them to come to us. In this session we'll discuss pro-active, preparatory strategies to help us know when and how to run into the battle. We'll also discuss how to form a circle of support to ensure you and your team are ready when the time comes.
