4 Leadership Postures Crucial to the Long-term Success of a Nonprofit - Interview with Michele Reiner - EP 33

How can stories support actionable change in the nonprofit sector? Why is the relationship between a nonprofit executive director and their board chair so crucial to long-term success and stability and what are practical ways to strengthen this relationship?

These are questions at the heart of the work of Michele Reiner, a nonprofit professional with 25 years of experience in the industry and the founder of Storied Awareness. Through Storied Awareness, Michele creates spaces for nonprofit leaders to be seen, heard, and understood so they can more effectively serve their constituents and communities.

We had the pleasure of recently connecting with Michele to talk about some of the challenges facing nonprofit leaders today and practical ways they can overcome these through the power of trust, connection, and understanding. Michele also shared four leadership postures crucial to the long-term success and stability of a nonprofit which she derived based on insights from over 40 former nonprofit executive directors.

If you work in the nonprofit sector, you’ll want to give this conversation with Michele a listen! And if you know someone who works in the nonprofit sector, this is a great episode to share with them.
