- Social Worker to Manager: Core Competencies for Effectively Bridging the Gap Between Direct Service and Leadership
Over the next decade, a leadership gap is predicted in the nonprofit sector. By 2016, it is estimated that these organizations will need to recruit and develop almost 80,000 new high-level managers each year. While social workers can be highly effective leaders (e.g., managers, directors, administrators) of nonprofit organizations, many overlook these opportunities since the majority of their training and experience has been providing direct services. Those who do transition often have important skill or knowledge deficits that limit their success. Based on recommendations from the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance, this highly interactive workshop will provide professionals with an understanding of the core skills needed to transition into leadership positions. This Continuing Education course is appropriate for professionals who have recently been promoted into management roles, or who are interested in making this transition.
