Course Description

This course is provided by Leadership Learning Community and will require a secondary login and/or registration.


Executives’ use of coaching, peer networks, and leadership development programs are on the rise and are ranked the top three most effective strategies by executive directors for leadership development and support. And while shared leadership is a common value among the vast majority of nonprofit executives, many find it challenging to put these values into practice through organizational systems and structures. These findings are among those reported in Daring to Lead 2011 CompassPoint’s recent study of over 3000 nonprofit executives nationwide. During the webinar, Marla explores the report’s findings, implications, and the actions that nonprofit leaders, funders, and capacity builders can take to better support executives and the organizations they dare to lead.
