Susan Comfort

This session helps organizations build more effective work-teams. We’ll examine our self-care strategies and turn them into “team-care” to support our allies and teammates. Utilizing audience challenges, humor, and brain science, Susan’s webinar will help each participant understand how they can juice up their team’s productivity as well as their collective joy and impact.

Since we must support each other through our stressful nonprofit work … tools, tips and best practices will be demonstrated (and downloaded) on how to build connection and camaraderie within teams.

This no longer needs to be an expensive initiative but rather one of developing a global mindset. This webinar will look at practical steps your organization can take in order to benefit from a more global outlook. It will draw on the experiences of nonprofits who have done so.

The first quarter of a new calendar year is an excellent time to “look up” and see where we are and where we want to go. This session provides a framework to help us get a different view – to enhance strategic thinking and explore tools and techniques to set goals and take action.

No factor is more critical in determining your success as a chief executive than your partnership with your board. CEOs who have built a close, positive and productive working relationship with their board tend to thrive over the long run, achieving their leadership goals and advancing their careers. By contrast, CEOs who haven’t mastered the art of building and sustaining a rock-solid partnership with their board tend to be less effective leaders and to be far less secure in their positions.

Drawing on Doug Eadie’s 25 years of work with over 500 CEOs and their boards and on his newest book, The Board-Savvy CEO, “Hit the Ground Running With Your New Board” provides CEO-aspirants and new CEOs with detailed, practical guidance in building a rock-solid partnership with their new board.

Now think about the content that you’ve loved — how often has it used humor or comedy to convey its message? This session will (1) dissect the different types and formulas for humor and comedy, (2) examine case studies of successful humorous content from a number of industries, and (3) identify opportunities to use humor in marketing. Armed with a few simple formulas, you’ll never look at ideas or content the same again.
