Whitefish Community Foundation will host an online workshop Thursday, May 12 with national business consultant Andy Robinson on the topic of managing change and leadership transitions. The workshop is part of the foundation’s Nonprofit Development Partnership program.

Robinson will discuss how organizations grow and change over time and how leadership needs to change accordingly. He will provide tips for creating change at the personal, interpersonal and group levels and give an overview of how to design a succession plan.

The 90-minute online workshop begins at 11:30 a.m. There is no fee to participate, however, attendees are required to register in advance at
