What factors determine the success of a nonprofit organization?  While sufficient financial, technology, human resources, and more are obviously important, numerous mission focused nonprofits are demonstrating that such limitations can be overcome.  Many highly successful nonprofits, it seems, are always in need of additional resources, but somehow continue to achieve their mission year after year. Just how do they do this?  With the excellent leadership and strong “people skills” of their key personnel.  Time and time again, strong leadership and great people skills will galvanize and motivate an organization to keep moving forward despite their limited resources.  Please join Brad Lebowsky, MBA, an accomplished nonprofit consultant, and leadership trainer, as he describes the attributes of strong leadership and how with training managers and supervisors throughout your nonprofit can become the key to keeping your organization moving forward and focused on achieving its mission.
