This summer the Maximizing Excellence Team spent some time working on the business, instead of in the business. We began work on a strategic plan of our very own, Cindy attained the Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) certification, and Kacey and I attended a three-day facilitation training hosted by Thrive.
At Maximizing Excellence we help people think critically, creatively, and purposefully through very intentional structure and processes. By helping people think in a certain way, and knowing what to do with their thoughts, we empower organizations to find solutions, map out the next five years, and meet campaign goals.
Facilitation is the vehicle for that structure and process. Just as it is important for us to keep current with industry standards, it is also a priority to hone and build upon our facilitation skills.
Through our recent training, we improved as facilitators and filled our toolboxes with new ideas and techniques that we are excited to use going forward in our work.
