Building Healthy and Effective Nonprofit Leadership Teams

By Leslie Bonner, Senior Consultant, Dewey & Kaye

Dewey and Kaye recently surveyed and interviewed 104 nonprofit Executive Directors and senior leaders who lead or are part of a leadership team. The primary goal of this research was to study the effectiveness, capacity and challenges of senior leadership teams in order to help build teams that foster growth and sustainable outcomes in their organizations.

Leadership of a nonprofit organization is a shared activity. To be successful and sustainable the organization needs more than one strong leader at the top; it needs a healthy, capable, aligned and strategic senior leadership team. 88 percent of survey participants agreed or strongly agreed with the statement: "successful organizations are led not just by an Executive Director or CEO but include a high performing and cohesive team of senior leaders." These teams at the top of nonprofits typically include heads of Programs or Services and functional leaders such as the heads of Finance, Development or Operations and range in size from 3-15 people.
