Bill Palladino - MLUI's curator insight, April 19, 2013 9:50 AM

I'd agree with most of what this article suggests.  Nonprofit annual reports are, for the most part, staid, boring, and often filled with balderdash. How do we move to a new form of reporting that shows true impact in exciting ways?  How does your nonprofit do this?

Ken Dickens's curator insight, April 19, 2013 1:36 PM

Non-Profit reporting should be about impact. Not admin costs, not, percentages.  It should tell a story to potential donors as to the results their donations will produce.  Sounds like a business, doesn't it?  Ken

Eight Lessons from the Great Man (or Woman) School of Leadership

Don Dea's curator insight, June 18, 2013 12:16 AM

1)    Vocation.  Great leaders all feel “called” by something deep inside them urging them to take the kind of risks with their lives that most people avoid.

2)    Self-Confidence.  Every great leader believes in himself, and his ability to “make a difference.”  Even a hard core progressive leader, for example, must believe that he or she can wiggle free from the crushing influences of the ambient socio-economic environment long enough to change that environment for others.

3)    Superstition.  While most would deny it, great leaders share a superstitious sense that it is their destiny to succeed. This in turn provides an uncanny knack for rejecting any environmental noise from peers, pundits, and “experts” that may argue otherwise.
