EPIP Philadelphia | Polarity Thinking in Philanthropy: How We Work with Our Grantees

Join us for a facilitated dialogue about our varied approaches to working with and supporting grantees. We will explore the benefits of both directive and responsive support, as well as the negative impacts that occur when we focus on one to the exclusion of the other. Better yet, we will create action steps for your foundation to leverage the positive aspects of both responsive and directive approaches to working with grantees.

This workshop will be based on Polarity Thinking, a tool created by Barry Johnson. No knowledge of Polarity Thinking is needed – we will show you what you need to know to have powerful discussions within the workshop and outside. 

This session is designed for funders and nonprofit leaders and is presented jointly by EPIP Philadelphia and the Alliance for Nonprofit Management.
