Roadmap for New Executive Directors
Posted by La Salle Nonprofit Center on October 2, 2017
You’ve earned the right to be an executive director, but that means all eyes are on you – the board, the staff and other key stakeholders. The early days of your tenure are a delicate balance of projecting confidence, while having so much to learn; of establishing relationships and developing insights; of needing to exercise control without alienating others. It involves knowing what needs to be done to lead effectively and then actually seeing that it’s done.
Additional pressure comes from the expectation that you must be proficient in so many aspects of nonprofit management, including fundraising, human resources, finances and governance. This class isn’t designed to teach you these skills, but rather to prepare you for what to expect and to present executive-level management practices that you must have in order to navigate the demands you are expected to meet.
This class mix of professional instruction and peer support will help pave your way to confident and informed leadership.
When: November 8, 2017, 9 am to 3 pm
Where: Ballard Spahr, 1735 Market St., Phila.
Fee: $105 for Members/$130 for Non-members
This class is designed for EDs with less than two years experience in that role.
