Change is the only constant in today’s global, knowledge-based economy. In this challenging environment, nonprofit leaders must think and act strategically to translate their organizational missions into clear objectives, focused plans and actionable programs. This program will help you better understand and manage opportunities and risks as they arise in the nonprofit sector by focusing on personal and organizational leadership strategies.
Guided by Kellogg’s expert faculty through lectures, hands-on exercises and interactive dialogue, you’ll explore how to maximize your own performance and engage and inspire others to action by communicating a sense of purpose, values and vision. You’ll examine the strengths, motivations and conditions necessary for authentic and powerful leadership, learn the behaviors that differentiate leaders with extraordinary impact, and develop your own “story” or personal narrative for strengthening your leadership impact in your organizations.
