*Tough Truths Nonprofit Leaders Need to Know for Real Success
Event Category 


This webinar will help nonprofit leaders enhance their leadership greatness. Tough Truths goes beyond the standard lessons we know, focusing instead on the ones we don’t usually hear about. We will cover topics that pertain to executive directors and other nonprofit leaders that include: the leader’s (un)popularity, work/life balance, and the never-ending fundraising paradox. These truths are not comfortable, but they are meant to get real, to validate you, and to let you know, you aren’t alone. You’ll leave this live online training feeling inspired and equipped with the insights needed to continue leading your organization to greatness. 


  • Feel validated about the unique challenges that executive directors and other nonprofit leadership face and know that you’re not alone
  • Discuss how to deal with all those reactions to unpopular leadership decisions
  • Reflect on why work/life balance doesn’t exist and how to be happy anyway
  • Discover the truth about how others feel about your organization and how to make your organization stand out from the rest
  • Determine how to make that elusive board relationship as effective as possible
