Nonprofit Radio: Shared Leadership Options

I’ll be on Nonprofit Radio this Friday at 10:30 am PT / 1:30 pm ET talking with host Tony Martignetti about shared leadership models. Catch us live on Talking Alternative or a few days later on iTunes.

We’ll no doubt be talking about some pros and cons associated with several models of shared leadership, including:

  • Co-CEOs
  • CEO and other C-suite officers (e.g., CEO and COO, President and Vice-President)
  • CEO and a Board active in the operations
  • Program Autonomy (e.g., holacracy)


Stay tuned after the show …
