Panel Discussion on Leadership in Social Enterprise
“….The leadership, competence, and management of the social sector nonprofit organization will……determine the values, vision….and performance of the 21st century society."
Peter F. Drucker
The social sector is approaching a tipping point all around the world. If the last century was one of economic growth, the 21st century has the prospect of coupling wealth with well-being, and bringing to the fore the people and innovation processes by which we can sustain social resilience. While there are many approaches to social change, social entrepreneurs are in the vanguard of this shift, innovating, growing new models, and demonstrating how others can be more effective.
During this panel discussion we will explore the key determinants of superior performance in social enterprises and nonprofit organizations, through the prism of top management and/or board leadership. We will examine the challenges of social enterprise leadership to build a transformed world reflecting a future in which social, political, and economic reform create a better life, not just a more prosperous one. What are the qualities of leadership required to bring about this transformed world? We will consider the applicability of for-profit management approaches to nonprofit organizational challenges as well as how to adapt them to the unique dimensions of a nonprofit organization.
Our panel represents leaders from innovative organizations that have leveraged new approaches to drive results as they seek to overcome the most urgent social challenges facing us today. Our panelists will discuss how innovative leadership practices they have adopted could help the social sector.
