Leadership and Governance Resources Overview
The sustainability and future of nonprofits in Minnesota often depend on the decisions made by leaders on staff and the board of directors. Nonprofit boards of directors serve as the governing body, while staff primarily manages the organization. Several types of leadership can exist within a nonprofit, including various styles of leadership, generations of leaders and positions within the organization itself. It is important to recognize and cultivate leadership skills within an organization in order for the nonprofit to successfully champion for its mission and cause.
