Frances Hesselbein Institute Ranks 20 in Leadership Excellence's Top 500 

NEW YORK, OCTOBER 22, 2012 - Leadership Excellence announced today that the Frances Hesselbein Leadership Institute (founded as the Peter F. Drucker Foundation for Nonprofit Management in 1990) ranked 20 in the category of Non-Profit Organizations in the publication's Leadership 500.

The Leadership 500 is an annual ranking of the best individuals, teams, and organizations in leadership development practices and employee motivation-productivity.

The Institute has been ranked in the Top 20 for Non-Profits since 2009. 

"To be in Leadership Excellence's Top 20 for four years in a row is an enormous honor. This recognition, in the inaugural year of the Institute's name change, will provide energy and inspiration for us moving into 2013," said Frances Hesselbein, president and CEO of the Institute. 

Additional non-profit organizations in the Top 20 include (1) Society for Human Resource Management, (3) American Management Association, (4) NYC Leadership Academy and (11) Best Practice Institute. 

The Leadership 500 was published in the October 2012 Special Edition of Leadership Excellence and sent to more than 187,000 paid membership base including the Fortune 1000 and many of the world's "movers, shakers, and decision makers."

Organizations were evaluated based on seven criteria:

Vision/mission. Are your vision and mission statements linked to strategy, meaningful to participants, and focused on target outcomes? 

Involvement and participation. How broad is the involvement and how deep the participation? 

Measurement and accountability. What ROI measures are made and reported, and to what degree is accountability for performance and results part of the program? 

Design, content, and curriculum. How well designed is the program? How credible is the content? How relevant is the curriculum? How customized is the program? 

Presenters, presentations, and delivery. What are the qualifications of the presenters, how effective are their presentations, and how is the program delivered? 

Take-home value. What do participants take away and apply to improve themselves, their families, their teams, and their volunteer work? 

Outreach. What is the impact of the program on stakeholders?
