What Is Nonprofit Excellence?

Core responsibilities for nonprofit leadership

Bring your lunch and join us for our second Leaders’ Lunch & Learn session, where Cinzia Perlingieri will discuss what defines true excellence in nonprofit leadership.

In modern nonprofits, organizational mission and performance are inextricably linked. Today’s nonprofit leaders cannot afford to expend resources on efforts that are based primarily on good intentions and wishful thinking. In this era of great social, economic, and political change, the social sector needs to focus on meaningful and measurable change. Nonprofit leaders and executives are critical to both maximize and sustain an organization’s impact, and they must possess the skills and core competencies that are necessary to inspire and support the people in their organization around this purpose.

In this LL&L, Cinzia will go over the principles that nonprofit leaders need to apply in order to achieve meaningful impact and sustainability for their organizations:

  • Strong, responsive leadership
  • People-oriented management
  • Strategic problem-solving
  • Well-designed and well-implemented programs and strategies
  • Financial health and stability

CVNL has applied these principles to the curriculum of the new Excellence in Leadership Program (ELP). In this LL&L, Cinzia will also provide an overview of the program that will launch in April 2019.
