Nonprofit & For-Profit: Creating a Successful Partnership (Shiloh Karshima)

April 2022

Do you communicate a clear message that properly represents the voice of those you serve?  In episode #154 of Your Path to Nonprofit Leadership, Shiloh Karshima highlights some of the challenges nonprofit leaders face in trying to make their case more clearly and in an authentic way. She is a gifted leader with more than two decades experience building philanthropic partnerships in over 14 countries.  Shiloh explains how communication and harmonization are the keys to creating a successful partnership between the for-profit and nonprofit sectors.  Learn why the acquisition and implementation of tangible skills will elevate your passion into a dynamic leadership role that others will desire to follow.  Shiloh also gives tangible examples of how nonprofit and for-profit leaders can partner to provide an even greater social impact.  Learn why nonprofit leaders who communicate in a shared language with their for-profit counterparts can bridge the bottom-line principles common to both sectors. 

"Leaders in every sector understand the value of a learned skill set; however, exhibiting compassion will make you a great leader."
