If you're expecting your organization to create a professional development plan,
you are making a big mistake.
This is up to YOU.
Seriously, think about it: If your organization doesn’t have a real communications strategy or well-established communications work flows in place – and few nonprofits really do -- how can they possibly create a professional development plan for you? Odds are, you are creating those things for your nonprofit as you go, and you also need to create your professional development plan.
Nonprofit communications work is constantly evolving, and that means the skills and experiences needed to be effective are changing just as fast.
During this brand-new webinar, Kivi Leroux Miller will show you how to create a professional development plan that puts you on the path to becoming a highly skilled and experienced communications director.
The Skills Communications Directors Need Today. We’ll start by reviewing Nonprofit Marketing Guide’s research on the skills that the most effective nonprofit communicators possess and the best practices they are most likely implementing.
How to Rate Your Own Skills. We’ll review some options for assessing your current expertise, including taking some of Nonprofit Marketing Guide’s assessments and getting feedback from others who work with you.
Setting Goals. We’ll help you think through how you want to grow in your current job and/or what you’d like your next job to be. We’ll help you prioritize what to work on first, in the next several months. We’ll also talk about how to look forward over the next couple of years.
Creating Your Plan. We’ll look at how to combine skills training, new work experiences, professional networking, and mentoring into a cohesive professional development plan that helps you level up.
Making the Case for Management Support. We’ll provide tips for how to make the case for more professional development support from your employer.
We’ll also share . . .
