It may not surprise you that CEO’s and celebrities, alike, rely on sharp and polished presentations. But it may be less obvious that these “soft skills” are necessary in nonprofit leadership. According to Ruth, it’s the ability to effectively communicate and inspire, that places the leader ahead of the rest.
