Summary from March NfP Managers' Meeting
There was lots to think about after the N-f-P Managers' meeting on Friday 3rd March 2017 when we welcomed Tracy Hutton from Resilient Organisations to talk about Organisational Resilience.
Tracy challenged the meaning of the word 'resilience' away from references of character, especially referring to the people of Christchurch post-earthquake, and focussed on what makes a resilient organisation. We talked about Resilience Indicators that organisations might want to consider in three keys areas:
- Leadership and Culture: how staff engagement leads to staff retention, and the dangers of staff working at full-capacity and not being able to pick up slack when needed.
- Networks: how our relationships with other organisations can support us in a crisis.
- Change Ready: our preparedness in contingency situations like a fire, or even long term staff absence.
