Nonprofit sector struggles with leadership shortage | - Houston Chronicle

Nonprofit sector struggles with leadership shortage | - Houston Chronicle: "Nonprofit sector struggles with leadership shortage


Before co-founding in Houston the nation's third Dress for Success affiliate, Nancy Levicki was the European couture buyer for the erstwhile emporium Sakowitz.

She's got the perfect mix of panache and practicality that's as effective with battered women needing business suits as it is with the corporate sponsors donating money.

But as she charts out the future of the nonprofit that provides career clothing and counseling for economically disadvantaged women, she can't count on finding a former high-fashion retail buyer with high-society contacts to take on her job when she's ready for retirement."

Greetings and thank for your work on the blog. This issue of leadership is key in an organization. We deal with this issue in a report that readers may download from here.

I am President of Mission Movers a consulting firm from the US that is producing a capacity building report for foundations and nonprofits. We just finished the initial draft of this capacity building report. I believe it has some ground-breaking ideas in it. It also challenges some core assumptions in the field today. We are looking for case studies you may have that connect with any of the ideas. The base report is only 30 pages with a few extras. This document is still in draft format and we are looking for feedback. We are very hopeful that this document will provide a new framework for working with nonprofits. Discussion on the document is going on at The pdf for download of this document can be found at:

Thanks in advance....
