A new online tool aims to help nonprofit professionals assess and improve their leadership skills.
Developed by Centerpoint for Leaders and focusing on the skills of individuals working for nonprofits, the new tool builds on other online resources the Washington, D.C., nonprofit has developed to improve organizational effectiveness and performance.
'If we can enhance the capacity of the individuals within organizations and build their leadership strengths, we can increase the capacity of the organization and the capacity of the nonprofit sector,' says Sandra Trice Gray, Centerpoint's president and CEO.
Centerpoint was formed in 2000 as a spinoff of Independent Sector, a nonprofit trade group in Washington, D.C., that had decided to focus more attention on advocacy."
