Colorado Springs Front Range Executive Service Corps (FRESC) presents a one-day interactive workshop to help nonprofits in the community build “success systems” for their organizations. Modeled on the “Good to Great” concepts and strategies developed by Jim Collins, a Boulder-based researcher and consultant who works with leaders in the corporate and social sectors to identify the opportunities, obstacles and overall dynamics that affect an organization’s ability to function effectively and to advance its success in a way that coincides with its mission.

This is not a workshop from which you take home a syllabus and stick it on a shelf to gather dust. Participants will leave with a real plan on how they can improve, how they can implement a success system in their organization. In fact, each participating organization must commit to sending a minimum of two people to allow for the teamwork to be done in breakout sessions.

It’s a workshop that promises to be an eye-opener. And FRESC Director Randy Scott promises it will be utterly practical as well. “Participants will leave with a real plan on how they can improve,” he said, “how they can implement success in their organization.”
