Essentials of Nonprofit Management and Leadership: A Skills-Based Approach equips readers with the knowledge, skills, and competencies they need to serve as effective nonprofit leaders and advance human rights and social and economic justice. The book provides students with a strong foundation in professional values, knowledge development in leadership and management, and opportunities to develop their personal and professional abilities through skill-building activities.
The text balances substantive content with hands-on experiential exercises and assignments to help students develop practical skillsets. It introduces theories and conceptual frameworks related to human behavior in organizational and social contexts. Equipped with this knowledge, future leaders are empowered to engage others, assess agency- and community-level concerns, intervene when problems occur, and evaluate the impacts of programs, interventions, and policies. Topics addressed within the text include personal communication, planning, program evaluation, budgeting, fund development, marketing, advocacy, and more.
Essentials of Nonprofit Management and Leadership arms readers with a conceptual view of the roles of nonprofit leaders and critical skills for effective practice. It is an excellent resource for courses in nonprofit leadership and management.
