Conference session: Five Processses to Automate in Your Organization to Gain Uber Efficiencies
Center: What does leadership mean to you?
JG: Great question, simple yet extremely comprehensive. After reading and learning from the greatest business minds who have come before us, I think the writer Kevin Kruse – a contributor to Forbes has summarized it best; Leadership is a process of social influence which maximizes efforts of others towards achievement of a goal.
Notice key elements of this definition:
• Leadership stems from social influence, not authority or power
• Leadership requires others and is based on maximizing – getting the best – of others
• No mention of personality traits, attributes, or even a title; there are many styles, many paths to effective leadership
• It includes a goal, not influence with no intended outcome
Center: In your session, “Five Processes to Automate in Your Organization to Gain Uber Efficiencies” what should attendees expect to gain insight to?
JG: The basic premise is that Nonprofits should be run like for profits from a management viewpoint and therefore should make particular emphasis in maximizing the use of their resources, both human capital and technology tools, in short always strive to increase productivity. This session rests on our experience of thousands of nonprofits in order to crystallize which technology tools are best suited to increase the productivity. Attendees should expect to come out with a clear path for improving financial processes, specifically, gathering information useful to donors and management, automating payables processes within the Organization, automating time allocation among grants, and what can be expected of a state of the art payroll and HR cloud system. In short, how to build a financial infrastructure with the best of the breed in the latest cloud technology.
