Topic:                Daring to Lead 2011: Leadership Development & Support for Nonprofit Leaders

Date:                 Tuesday, July 26th 11:00-12:00 Noon PDT (2:00-3:00PM EDT)

Executives’ use of coaching, peer networks, and leadership development programs are on the rise and are ranked the top three most effective strategies by executive directors for leadership development and support. And while shared leadership is a common value among the vast majority of nonprofit executives, many find it challenging to put these values into practice through organizational systems and structures.  These findings are among those reported in Daring to Lead 2011 CompassPoint’s recent study of over 3000 nonprofit executives nationwide. During the webinar, Marla explores the report’s findings, implications, and the actions that nonprofit leaders, funders, and capacity builders can take to better support executives and the organizations they dare to lead. The objectives for the webinar included:

  • A better understanding of the kinds of professional development activities and leadership development support that executives directors utilize most and find most effective
  • A better understanding of the kinds of challenges leaders face when trying to operationalize shared leadership values inside their organizations
  • A few concrete action items that nonprofit leaders, funders, and capacity builders can implement to support nonprofit leaders and their staffs.
