The Practice of Nonprofit Leadership

The Practice of Nonprofit Leadership

The Practice of Nonprofit Leadership was designed for Executive Directors of small to medium sized nonprofits.  If you are currently an Executive Director or hope to be one someday this is your spot. 

Leading an organization can be one of the most fun, exhilarating, rewarding, scary, thankless jobs in the universe.  Using a mixture of encouragement, information, stories, and practical tools, hosts Tim Barnes and Nathan Ruby will use their years of nonprofit leadership experience to make your journey a little easier,  more fun, and ultimately help you be more effective in leading your organization.
