To Build Future Leaders - Get Intentional About Development

The BridgeSpan Group discusses how nonprofit leaders should map talent needs to competencies to help fulfill their strategies.

Three nonprofit leaders, who participated in the Leading for Impact program, share how they approached revamping their talent development processes to focus on competencies with their missions in mind.
