Overview

Pathways to Leadership is a practical, nuts-and-bolts guide written for nonprofit chief executives and those on the career path to becoming chief executives. In this book, author James Lawrence Powell provides realistic advice and offers illustrative examples for developing the skills necessary to become a successful nonprofit leader. The book is filled with numerous checklists, case examples, and a valuable resource section containing a list of questions interviewers ask, guidelines on negotiating the initial contract and holding the first senior staff meeting, scenarios on asking for gifts, and tips on learning to use the computer. Pathways to Leadership is a valuable guide for all nonprofit executives who wish to lead with vigor and mastery. For those who aspire to the position of CEO, the author details the search interview process from the perspective of the candidate, explains how to maximize the chances of getting a job offer, and offers sensible suggestions for salary negotiations. And for those already in a leadership role, Powell surveys several crucial administrative skills - including time management, making meetings productive, the art of delegation, and control and use of technology. He illuminates the often difficult task of building a successful team and describes how to employ the best aspects of Total Quality Management. Powell describes how to select qualified personnel and evaluate senior staff members in order to achieve maximum potential from staff. Also, he outlines the steps necessary for gaining and maintaining financial stability.
