DEVELOPING A CULTURE OF TALENTED LEADERS AND MANAGERS
Talent matters. For any nonprofit to successfully deliver transformational results during this unprecedented time of change, its entire diverse workforce – paid and volunteer – must elevate their performance. Investing in an inclusive talent development program to optimize the full potential of all personnel and grow organizational capacity must be a strategic priority for nonprofits and donors alike.
In Applied Wisdom for the Nonprofit Sector (Second Edition) Jim Morgan, a revered Silicon Valley high-tech executive, philanthropic leader and co-founder of a nonprofit collaborative, shares his profound leadership insights and management principles proven to be effective in business, nonprofit and philanthropic contexts. Anyone can learn and practice them to be a better leader and manager regardless of their title, position, training or tenure.
The Applied Wisdom content on this website (also available in a concise booklet) offers you:
A collection of practical tools to help implement an Applied Wisdom learning program, empowering all levels of your diverse staff and board and instilling new behaviors and practices.
