More than 400 nonprofit leaders come through CRE’s door each year. In the midst of this heavy consulting workload, we engaged 67 leaders over the last three years in four Leadership Caucuses, CRE’s nine-month leadership development program. These leaders in turn had the "courage to pause" from their impossibly crowded schedules and delve into the uncharted and fuzzy universe of leadership issues. This publication summarizes some of what we've learned about leadership in the nonprofit sector.
