Good teams can hit a wall. Despite talented people and no shortage of hard work, sometimes the rate at which results have been eclipsing previous benchmarks starts to slow down. Sound familiar? We’re talking about the puzzling plateau that frustrates not because anything is really going wrong. It’s because the level of success has remained stubbornly bounded by some imaginary wall.

If this is something that you and your organization have been wrestling with, join Atlas Network’s COO Matt Warner on Thursday, September 6 at 10 AM (EST) as he discusses the “Definition and Diffusion Model of Teamwork” to help you get beyond the “nonprofit plateau” and create greater, lasting impact in your community.
