Performance Management Leadership Institute

At its core, the Performance Management Leadership Institute intertwines principles of nonprofit organizational management and leadership development into a training program that guides participants toward implementing a performance management strategy or system.

The Institute uses the Principles and Practices for Nonprofit Excellence as a guide to develop effective strategies and tools. This interactive model of learning ultimately leads to strong benefits for community stakeholders.

What Will I Do in the Institute?

  • You will participate in focused monthly trainings on performance management strategies and leadership tools for nonprofits.
  • You will be a part of a cohort of diverse leaders at different stages in their leadership career, engaging in frank discussion and sharing mutual issues and interests, resulting in the emergence of new views, ideas and solutions.
  • You will lead a team of your colleagues or stakeholders as you connect the Institute to outcomes in your community.
  • You and your team will acquire specific tools and guidance so that you can track performance management benchmarks in your organization.
  • You will receive ongoing support from trainers and MCN staff, to encourage implementation of new performance management strategies or systems in your nonprofit.
