Mindset & Direction
This phase pulls everything covered in the program together. We’ll get a business plan wrapped up and polished, review developed materials like pitches, pitch decks, and plans, and get ready for the Catalyst Expo. We’ll get some metrics together and see what kind of tangible progress we can show over the duration of the program. Most importantly, we’ll cover any questions you still have, provide you with info regarding ongoing support after program completion, and talk specifics about the final event.
Whether inspired by personal experience or observed need, the catalyst for your nonprofit was not leadership or culture, but producing good. To last, however, you most articulate your vision into culture, a culture that flows from your leadership. Who are you, what do you do, and why do you do it? How you answer these questions will be the path you lay in front of you. This program is about building your path in such a way that others will walk alongside you.
