Direction, Alignment, Commitment: Toward a More Integrative Ontology of Leadership Microsoft Word file [download] [more info]

This paper argues that the current, widely-accepted leadership ontology – leaders, followers, and shared goals – is becoming less useful for understanding leadership in contexts that are increasingly peer-like and collaborative. The further development of leadership theory calls for a corresponding development at the level of leadership ontology. Thus, an alternative leadership ontology is proposed: direction, alignment, and commitment. A theoretical framework based on such an ontology is sketched out. It is argued that such a framework can integrate emerging leadership research and ultimately stimulate the development of new leadership theory and practice.

Convergence: How Five Trends will Reshape the Social Sector PDF file [download] [more info]

The nonprofit sector, like the rest of the nation, has been riveted by the first great economic crisis of the new century. This response is only natural, as the crisis threatens large numbers of organizations with, at the least, hard times, and at the worst, extinction. But this story is not about that crisis. The nonprofit sector is at an inflection point1 that will fundamentally reshape it long after the recession, when surviving nonprofits find themselves in a new reality — not just economically, but demographically, technologically and socially. We call this shift NonprofitNext.
