In for-purpose organisations putting money into people development can be a tough call. One US Foundation has conducted a significant evaluation of the impact of leadership development in its nonprofit grantees and the results are impressive. More income, more impact and kicking major organisational goals.
Coaching, which the business sector has long viewed as a way to support current and emerging leaders, is just beginning to take hold in the nonprofit world. The Action Guide for Nonprofits was developed to support for-purpose individuals and organisations to navigate this territory well. A great resource.
