    Courageous Leadership: Managing Change & Making a Difference

    Emancipet New School

    February 24, 2019 (All day) to February 26, 2019 (All day)

    The idea that leaders are born and not made? Well that’s just hooey. Sure, some folks are more inclined to exercise leadership than others. But the idea that it’s because they were born to be leaders ignores the fact that a.) leadership is a practice - an exercise - not a title, role, or position, and b.) what we often confuse for leadership is actually the exchange of power (for service) better known as authority. Is charisma a useful tool? You bet. Can strong public speaking skills move people? Of course. Are either of those things the exercise or practice of leadership?

    Beyond Spay/Neuter: Why You Need a Low-Cost Healthy Pet Clinic & How to Build It

    Emancipet New School

    March 21, 2019 (All day) to March 22, 2019 (All day)

    In many communities the model of providing spay/neuter, possibly with an optional vaccine or two and a microchip included at the time of surgery, is no longer enough. In this seminar, Emancipet will provide participants with lessons learned, best practices and budgeting tools for adding and managing low-cost vet care to your organizations services. The inclusion of an affordable public “Healthy Pet” clinic component at many shelters and spay/neuter organizations would begin to close the gap in services to lower income and underserved families.

    Great Culture, Great Results: Building & Sustaining Healthy Organizations from the Inside Out

    Emancipet New School

    March 25, 2019 (All day) to March 26, 2019 (All day)

    Peter Drucker is famously thought to have said “Culture eats strategy for breakfast.” Whether he said it or not, we couldn’t agree more with the sentiment. Time and again we’ve witnessed and experienced the reality of the internal culture of an organization impacting its capacity to deliver on strategy and mission. It’s no wonder that unhealthy culture leads to disengaged staff, higher turnover, and unhappy clients – all of which make it difficult for an organization to stay focused on goals and program priorities.
