Before the course starts there will be some preparation work, such as introducing yourself to the group, and finding a buddy (I suggest one of your board members) if you don’t already have one etc..
On Friday evenings you will receive an email with a link with the week’s course materials. You’ll have the week to go through them and do the exercises – in some cases with your buddy. All the information is broken into digestible chunks so you won’t get overwhelmed. You might choose do to do an hour a day or set aside an afternoon each week.
The following week at 7:00pm EST we’ll have a live Q&A session via Zoom and I’ll go through the materials and answer any questions that have come up for you. If you have questions in the interim you can post them on the facebook page.
For the weeks 6 and 7, you’ll take all that you’ve learned and compile a draft – you’ll need at least 8-10 hours each week to do that. I know that’s a lot of time for most non-profit folks but you know that you get out of anything what you put into it.
Once your draft is complete, we’ll share them with each other via googledocs and everyone will read each other’s draft and make constructive comments. During the final session, we’ll take 10-15 minutes to offer feedback to each person on their draft.
