Non-profit organizations can only operate to their fullest potential if there is effective and aligned leadership being practiced at the board level. Board training can be fundamental to developing nonprofit core competencies among board members. AboveBoard is an online board development program designed to help board members gain the knowledge and skills they need to practice effective strategic leadership. This program includes courses on governance, strategic planning, and improving board performance.
Whatever being better looks like for each non-profit organization it starts with a roadmap that has a clear vision and path toward the future. Plaid’s team of consultants collaborates with organization leaders to facilitate data-informed strategic planning processes to create a plan that represents the goals, priorities, and needs of the many stakeholder groups of a non-profit entity.
Staff and group development can be essential in helping non-profit organizations create a team that will carry out the mission and strategic initiatives of the organization. Since the non-profit industry is made up of both paid employees and unpaid volunteers, peer learning experiences can strengthen the team by building cohesion and shared commitment. Plaid provides a number of facilitated staff and group development experiences to help leaders and group members effectively work together. Our staff and group development experiences aim to help learners develop personal awareness of their interests, strengths, motivations, and needs while also understanding how to engage in productive relationships with others.
Having the right people in the right roles helps elevate the positive impact non-profit entities aim to achieve.Plaid assists non-profit organizations in identifying candidates whose passion and work ethic match the demands and direction of the non-profit industry.

Engaging learning experiences are key to any pursuit of being better.
