This class immerses you in the individual areas and roles that every senior leader in a nonprofit must work in comfortably – including fundraising, finance, human resources, marketing and programming, etc. At the same time, it illustrates the importance of their connectedness.

As an executive director (and often as a senior or mid-level manager), you will have to juggle various roles and responsibilities, always in the context of how the pieces must fit together with the organization-at-large.  Performing well as a nonprofit manager in these circumstances requires both specific skills, as well as the ability to solve problems and generate ideas as you manage mission, people, programs and resources.

This class clarifies the key responsibilities of senior managers and executive directors as well as the critical relationship between staff and board in any nonprofit. Pathways to becoming an effective leader, manager and facilitator will be presented, as will the ability to identify potential critical management issues and address them proactively. It serves as the ideal foundation for honing all your future management skills and individual capacity building.
