What does it take to be an effective nonprofit leader?

As it turns out, it’s not what sector you come from that matters; it’s the diversity of experiences that help develop great leaders.
As I mention in the final study: “Diverse life and professional experiences are important to developing new skills sets, adapting to new dynamics, and to leading change.”
