Leadership in Today’s Nonprofit

An organization’s greatest asset is the team of individuals who unite behind the mission and vision. In our rapidly changing environment, the ability of leaders to develop, support, and lead teams through change is crucial to sustainability and success. Impactful leaders must facilitate shared ownership of work, decisions, and results, by both inspiring (mind set) and empowering (skill set) team members to take initiative, solve problems, and innovate. Staff retention is driven by an organization’s development of individuals, found in opportunities for meaningful contribution as well as in the purposeful transfer of knowledge and skills. This session will prepare you to fortify the building blocks of a resilient organization—the people—with an intentional culture that guides everyone, together, through change.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Examine your ability to lead and inspire teams.
  • Describe how to foster a healthy organizational culture.
  • Recognize effective ways to lead a team through change.


  • New leaders, or emerging leaders aspiring to move into formal leadership positions
  • Leaders working through or anticipating a change/pivot, including those supervising teams, such as CEOs/EDs and Program Directors
