Equipping nonprofits to advance social change

Finding Leaders, Finding Solutions

This exercise can be used at a staff meeting or board retreat or in workshops for nonprofit leaders. We recommend using a facilitator to help keep the group on track and encourage people to move beyond their comfort zone. The exercise starts with a large group brainstorm, and then divides participants into small groups for discussion. The large group reconvenes for a report back and synthesis and ends with a discussion of next steps. This exercise can take up to 2 hours, so you may want to break it up or plan for more time.
