Mission: To strengthen and inspire leaders of the social sector and their partners in business and government.

The Collaboration Challenge

Across the world, leaders of organizations from all three sectors increasingly recognize the necessity of leading beyond the walls by developing partnerships that thrive on the shared strengths of their participants. The value of productive alliances for building healthy, cohesive communities has long been clear to leaders of nonprofit social sector organizations. The challenges our society faces cannot be met -- nor our opportunities fully realized -- by any one organization or sector alone. Effective collaboration with other nonprofits, government agencies, and businesses is an imperative.

The Frances Hesselbein Leadership Institute offers several tools to help nonprofit organizations further their missions through strategic alliances with other organizations. These resources can be used, alone or in combination, to encourage your board, volunteers, and staff to consider carefully whether and how to develop alliances with businesses.
