Finding Your Nonprofit Leadership Shadow


What is your leadership shadow, and why should you worry about it?  That's exactly what Dr. Will Sparks and I discuss in episode #14 of the Path. He's spent 20 years researching the characteristics of great leaders, and also the "shadow" side of their leadership styles which often hold them back in ways they're not even aware.  Will and I  explore  the practical aspects   of his studies, and how nonprofit  leaders can   amplify their positive qualities - but more   importantly - identify specific ways to identify their shadow side and do something  about it. You'll see how this can not only accelerate your  journey on the leadership path, but also create a more dynamic and  productive environment for  your staff, board and volunteer colleagues.   

"If we don't manage our leadership shadow, it will manage us.
