The 15 Principles of Leadership

Take a High-Octane Ride Through Some of the Key Qualities of Effective
Nonprofit Leaders

This workshop will take you on a journey into the soul of nonprofit leadership. It will delve deeply into the questions nonprofit leaders ask themselves everyday: How do I inspire and motivate my staff? How do I build trust with our staff, donors and clients? How can I lead with empathy so my staff feel valued, inspired and committed to their work? How can I encourage my staff to take the right risks? How can I build a culture of innovation? How can I handle challenges to my leadership?

Buckle up – this is a fast-paced workshop that covers a lot of ground in a short time.

Workshop Impact

This leadership workshop will have a tremendous positive impact on:

  • The capacity of your organization to raise funds for its programs
  • The passion, commitment and effectiveness of your staff
  • The relevance and usefulness of your board

Some specific results you can expect to see are:

  1. The building of a ‘second line of leadership’ to support the Executive Director that includes dedicated, compassionate executive staff who make others feel appreciated and respected, yet also drive the organization forward toward spectacular results
  2. Executive staff no longer micro-manage and try to do everything themselves, and instead create an environment that puts all staff at center stage so they can excel, feel ownership over their work and become high-level performers
  3. More innovation from staff in program design, implementation and evaluation
  4. An improved culture of self-awareness, honesty and self-management that permeates throughout your organization
  5. An enhanced organizational culture of personal responsibility and honest self-appraisal that encourages self-evaluation and reduces costs of lengthy performance review processes
  6. Staff are much more aware of their challenges and able to compensate for them while working with other members of their project teams
  7. An enhanced organizational culture of authenticity, free information flow and continuous quality improvement
