Organizational Health – Function Effectively, Cope with Change, and Experience Growth

We’re all striving to build strong, effective organizations with successful programs, talented staff, and financial sustainability. So what makes some organizations healthier and more effective than others? What are the key drivers of success? How does dominant culture, or white culture, define success in an organization? In this webinar, we run through TREC’s Organizational Effectiveness model, touching on key people, program, and money systems and how these three critical pieces can set your organization up for stability and sustainability. We also share stories that illustrate the effect of dominant culture, or white culture, on these key systems and processes.
