Road Map For NFP Leadership
Monday, 2nd July 2012 at 10:49 am

A new report in leadership organisation for Not for Profits has been released by US Advisory Group Bridgespan.

The survey shows that many charities and Not for Profit groups do not have effective leadership programs in place to effectively train staff.

“Many nonprofit leaders (including nonprofit boards) confront the question of leadership development only when faced with a succession crisis. And by then it may be too late,” the report said.

Bridgespan has created Plan A: How Successful Nonprofits Develop Their Future Leaders as a guide to help nonprofits think differently about leadership development.

Plan A treats leadership development not as an ad hoc response to crisis but as a proactive and systematic investment in building a pipeline of leaders within an organisation, so that when transitions are necessary, leaders at all levels are ready to answer the call.

Plan A is a three-year road map for the future that spells out an organisation’s evolving leadership needs, identifies future leaders, and details activities to strengthen their leadership muscle.

The processes are:

  • Engaging senior leaders
  • Mapping out a vision of the future leadership team
  • Developing future leaders. Leaders develop primarily through well-designed on-the-job experiences
  • Seeking new talent to fill gaps
  • Monitoring and improving the process of developing leaders

    If we are lookng at how successful leaders are developed in the US, maybe we should also be looking as similar plans from the UK, South Africa or elsewhere and if we don’t have on ourselves we should be incorporating otherse experiences into an Australian publication.
