Presentation Description

As leaders, each of us are faced with the challenge of leading grief support on a macro level. And similar to the grief journey, we often come across pitfalls and potholes that can keep our organization stuck and limit our impact. We may not always have a choice as to what challenges we face, but we do have a choice in how we respond. Whether you are new to nonprofit leadership or are an experienced leader looking for a refresher, learn six practical tools to help you navigate these pitfalls on the path of leadership.

Prior to social work, Rick spent ten years in retail management and sales before changing career paths and dedicating his life to serving those who need hope. Rick married his wife Cheryl in 2012.
