One of the largest challenges currently facing the nonprofit industry is a void of leadership talent. Many of us know great major gift officers and corporate fundraisers, but how many of these individuals are being led by truly great leaders? Many of the skills that enable one to be successful fundraiser, are quite different than (and sometimes at direct odds with) the skills needed to be a strong leader and manager. In other words, what makes someone a successful fundraiser will likely not make them a high-performing leader. What, then, is an aspiring leader to do?

 This session will address that challenge by helping participants: 

  1.  Identify the skills and aptitudes needed to be an effective leader and manager.
  2.  Identify barriers and challenges to developing leadership and management skills
  3. Create a plan for learning and a path forward for growth opportunities.

Do you aspire to be the next CDO, Director or Manager in your organization? Do you have a plan to get there? Presenter Lisa Anastasi has served in leadership roles during the last 12 years and will work with you to create a plan for to leadership growth in your organization.
