Leading from Behind  
“It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur.  You take the front line when there is danger.  Then people will appreciate your leadership.”  —Nelson Mandela
In business management, much has been written about the concept of leading from behind.  And, as expected, there is a lot of debate and discussion surrounding the usage and misusage of the concept.  Yet, why do we talk about this so much more in the world of for-profit business compared to the world of international nonprofits, much less humanitarian response?  Read on.

What our Partners Say

From our past partner, CU Peru, regarding Case Studies we created based on interviews with their Leadership to assist with constant leadership transition:
“The case studies were most helpful for orienting new members.  They addressed challenges that members of CU Peru have always faced but never had a good way of preparing for before they arise.”
From our partner Health Access Connectwith whom we are working on budgets, grant preparation, program design, GIS, and Monitoring & Evaluation:
“My favorite part about working with emBOLDen is that they understand where we are and how we can get to where we need to go. That helps us to make both long-term strategic plans and weekly to-do lists to keep us on track.”

GIS Reports

We completed our Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Toolbox Sessions in May.  Read our Evaluation Reports here.

Students Shoulder to Shoulder Update

In June, we piloted a new NGO Partner Assessment Tool with our partner Students Shoulder to Shoulder.  We loved having the opportunity to participate in their Course Instructor Training before their Summer Courses departed.
