Values Added: Working from Trust, Connectivity and Alignment

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How do we stand strong, clear and powerful when the winds come? How can we bend, but not break? In this session we will explore the power of having clear, shared values within an organization and/or a network. We will hear NAMA's story about how their values guide their work and build power in the face of constant challenges. Participants will walk away with an understanding of the power of Values and ways to help their organization or network articulate their shared values.
