How well does your strategic plan align with current best practices (GOV 2: Strategic and Annual Planning), while also leaving room for the agility needed to be successful in today’s ever-changing world and stay true to your mission?

Please join us at SPARK 2022, Sept. 13-14 in Baltimore to gain tools and practical knowledge for implementing innovative practice, policy, and research. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to hear from staff at Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch during their workshop, Moving from Strategic Planning to Strategic Action: Creating a Nimble and Innovative Organization, where you will:

  • Receive an introduction to the concepts of a Strategic Action Model
  • Be provided with tools and monitoring strategies which can be implemented to increase clarity and empower innovation within mission-directed parameters
  • Gain opportunities to practice the model using examples from the group

You’ll also want to hear from staff at Child and Family Agency of Southeastern CT where they will share their model to improve staff morale and overall retention at the Build Your Bench: Investing and Retaining the Next Generation of Leaders workshop.

This conversation is critical as it’s no secret that the workforce crisis has created huge challenges to meeting the needs of the most vulnerable individuals served by our sector. COA Accreditation’s Training and Supervision (TS) standards focus on practices needed to ensure you have the competencies, support, and continuous learning opportunities you need to fulfill roles and meet the needs of the people you serve. The right programs and approaches to those standards can provide a proactive approach to staff retention, building positive team morale, and improved organization performance despite those ongoing barriers and challenges and ensures the needs of your community continue to be addressed.

If you’re looking to get the most out of your COA Accreditation experience, be sure to attend the post-conference Intensive Accreditation Training session on Sept. 15 in Baltimore.
