NPO, the evidence and effort – and elephant

Noble Purpose No Comments

I am struck by how little literature there seems to be on the particular and tricky internal dynamics of leading charities. What there is often focuses on the skills to work in partnership with others, for example.

There are plenty of courses targeted at Charity leaders. I am struck that many development programmes seem to present generic modules that would suit aspiring and new leaders from a wide range of sectors, including fully commercial (non-Noble Purpose Organisation) ones.

What is the unique core curriculum a CEO or Director of a charity or public sector body needs to really help them prepare for their particular challenges?

I propose the ideas around the NPO paradox might be the ‘elephant in the corner’ of the education and research room.
