Strong leadership is widely recognized as essential to the success of any nonprofit organization, and never more so than when innovation and change are necessary. An organization’s capacity to navigate the unpredictable scaling process successfully depends largely on its people. Without investment in and subsequent retention of the talent that drives nonprofit growth and sustainability, the ability to grow impact is put at risk. How Can Grantmakers Focus on Nonprofit Talent to Grow Impact? explores the importance of supporting nonprofit talent development, the unique talent development needs of nonprofits seeking to grow their impact and how grantmakers can help. This latest paper is the final in the “Reframing the Conversation: A GEO Briefing Paper Series on Growing Social Impact” developed by Grantmakers for Effective Organizations as part of the Scaling What Works initiative, and builds upon seven others papers released throughout 2011.
