Mission Leadership is an organization's ability to inspire people within the organization to work toward a common vision and mission.

  • Using the five skills discussed earlier to craft goals that will build your own mission-focused leadership capacity.

  • The core differences between direct work and capacity-building work, and how to build leadership goals around both.

  • How an emphasis on connecting can supercharge mission-focused leadership at any level and in any nonprofit.
