Leadership
& Culture

Effective nonprofits invest in their leadership. They plan for transition, and are agile in order to be responsive to provide best services and achieve the organization’s mission. Leadership is developed internally as well as externally. Values have been articulated and practices are expressed in policies and team building, and staff are engaged in decision making.
