Webinar Prices

big fish, little fishHow Nonprofit Leaders Effectively Lead High-Performing Organizations

In this session, we will address the question: “What are the characteristics of an effective nonprofit leader?” Dr. Anthony Silard will share the results of over 25 years of research into nonprofit leadership, including his review of surveys of tens of thousands of employees around the world from the nonprofit, private, and public sectors who have been asked what they look for in their leaders.

We’ll also delve into the questions nonprofit leaders ask themselves everyday: “How do I inspire and motivate my staff?” “How do I build trust with my staff, board, funders, and clients?” “How can I lead with empathy and emotional intelligence so my employees feel valued, inspired, and committed to their work?” Anthony will also share the Three Spheres of Effective Leadership—a model that distills the three most important leadership qualities and how you can exercise them daily to become an effective leader.
