How to Navigate Your Path to Nonprofit LeadershipMarch 2022
How can Patton's new book, Your Path to Nonprofit Leadership: Seven Keys to Advancing Your Career in the Philanthropic Sector, help you on your journey to senior leadership? In episode #148 of the Path Podcast, guest host Ken Fuquay explores that exact question by turning the tables on Patton and asking why everyone in - or pondering - nonprofit leadership will benefit from this book. Patton shares some of his past experiences, what motivated him to write it, and why there is such a need for a resource like this across the entire nonprofit sector. As your host, Ken doesn't hold back with his questions, and throughout their discussion one thing becomes clear: Your Path to Nonprofit Leadership will help you become the kind of leader every nonprofit organization needs to make an even greater impact on the communities they serve.
"This book is not about leadership theory; it's about providing tools and best practices that nonprofit professionals can immediately integrate into their daily routine."
