a venture philanthropy partnership

SV2 Partner Curtis Chang recently wrote this interesting blog post in the Stanford Social Innovation Review to help Nonprofit Executive Directors gain the management skills they need: The Five-Minute Nonprofit MBA.

Curtis says:
"For the foreseeable future, most nonprofit executives will continue to have to learn the nuts and bolts of management on the fly....Many of my clients are engaged in this process, and I compiled a list of resources to help them. It doesn’t cover “sexy” topics like strategy, vision, and change management; it covers the basic competencies involved in managing people:

  • recruiting
  • developing staff
  • retaining talent
  • performance reviews
  • empowering initiative
  • and (gulp), termination

The art of executing these competencies well may not be glamorous, but any leader who lacks these skills—nonprofit or corporate—is destined for pain."
