Nonprofit comms work is so much chaos! We want to help you be as CALM as possible – that is, more Collaborative, Agile, Logical, and Methodical in your work. We know that’s how you tame the chaos.

We recommend 23 different CALMing actions to get you there. But where do you begin? We’ll help you decide and make a plan for yourself.

During this Jump Starter workshop, we’ll go through a couple of different exercises to help you pinpoint what’s going to produce the most CALM for you personally.

During this Jump Starter, you’ll receive:

  • A quick rundown of the 23 CALMing actions and some different ways to think about them in the context of your own work.

  • Small group discussion time to help you figure out where to prioritize. Would you benefit most from engaging in better conversations internally (being collaborative)? From building more trust internally (required for agility)? Or do you need to work on making better choices (being logical) or creating better routines (being methodical)?

  • Time to begin working on your game plan. Once you’ve narrowed down your focus a bit, we’ll give you some quiet time to work through your first next steps to a CALMer work life.

  • Instructions on how to find an accountability partner and get feedback from other All-Access Pass Holders and Kivi Leroux Miller to help ensure you stay on the path to CALM.

What Others Have Said about Our Jump Starter Workshops

“I appreciate the interactive component of the Jumpstart workshop. It was valuable having the opportunity to apply what we are learning during the session. Instead of setting myself a reminder to “do this,” I came away with a framework I can put use almost immediately. Thank you! This is a great direction to take your training sessions.” – Holly Pattison

“I loved connecting with others. I can not say enough how much I like the dedicated work time.” – Beth Helmueller-Perkins
