NonProfit Management Journal

NonProfit Management Journal | Nonprofit Management | Scoop.it
Thank you for reading:

This is our collection of news, articles, interviews, videos, and other ideas that we've found related to that curious thing that is Nonprofit Leadership. We put these here in one place after weeding through the chaff. We provide what's interesting and pertinent while excluding purely promotional materials. You should feel confident when you click on one of these links that it won't lead you through some spammy, scammy, adventure before you get to the heart of the matter.

Our work sees us partnering with some of the world's foremost thought leaders, and working with both nonprofit and for profit businesses. One of our core philosophies at Krios Consulting is that it is our job to open up the pathway between these two worlds. That businesses and nonprofits have much to learn from each other. To those ends we'll often post articles here that aren't specifically true to nonprofits but which may help shed some light on the greater world of business leadership.

We thank you for tuning in and suggest that you subscribe to the topic so you'll get daily updates from us.

Many thanks,

Bill Palladino
