Using Results-Based Accountability to Align Culture and Practice with Desired Outcomes 8/11

Join Drusilla Roessle for this RBA-focused session on day 2 (8/11) of Nonprofit Summer Camp!

Many of our experiences in mission-driven organizations are that we are aspirational, clear on values and theories of change, but often feel stuck or trapped by something elusive – our own structures and systems. This workshop engages participants in dialogue about one central question: “how can my organization embody the outcomes we are working to realize?” Together, we’ll dig into how our real and current experiences in organizational behavior patterns can be one of our most helpful guides in transforming them. We’ll explore how Results-Based Accountability as a methodology can be used to deepen organizational development and accountability work in a way that builds relationship, trust, creativity, and efficacy. I’ll start us off with some common language and ideas at the beginning, and then I’ll offer some prompts to guide whole-group dialogue. Can’t wait to see you there!
