Your skills and experience have prepared you to serve as an executive director or board leader. But education and experience don’t necessarily prepare us for the specific demands of nonprofit leadership. How well do you know your own leadership style? Are you democratic, paternalistic, a delegator, an autocrat, a collaborator, a coach or a steward?
Effective leadership is not something that happens by accident, nor does it have to be inherent. Even if you believe that leadership is not something that can be taught, it most certainly can be developed. It is the successful leader who recognizes the skills, expertise and characteristics he or she needs to focus on and consciously hones them in support of the specific role as organization leader. You start by developing a consciousness of your own style, the example you set for others and how your style impacts your organization. This class is for current and future executives who aspire to be the leader their organization deserves: one who motivates, inspires, earns trust and get results.
We will explore the essence of nonprofit leadership while looking at the leadership styles of others, to develop an understanding of the traits that make for successful leaders and distinguish them from managers.
