Over 10% of Americans work in the nonprofit sector, and leadership gurus mostly ignore them. That is why Vivien Hoexter and Linda C. Hartley, principals of H2Growth Strategies, decided to research nonprofit leadership by interviewing 50 top change-makers. They talked with CEOs of organizations such as the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, Goodwill Industries International and PBS.

Hartley says, “We were amazed by how willing these busy leaders were to share what was in their hearts and minds.”

One question the authors asked was, “After the 2016 election, The New York Times reported, ‘the widening political divergence between cities and small-town America reflects a growing alienation between the two groups and a sense, perhaps accurate, that their fates are not connected.’ What role could the nonprofit sector play to help the two groups find common ground?”

Leon Botstein, president of Bard College, answered, “We improve the conversation by providing services, opening lines of communication, and working collaboratively with communities with which we may actually disagree. For a long time we ignored communities of faith. We have to communicate with people who legitimately find comfort in faith.”

Together, Hartley and Hoexter have over 40 years of experience in leadership roles and as consultants to nonprofits. Their firm, H2Growth Strategies, advises nonprofits and foundations on planning, fundraising and board building.

Their book, Big Impact: Insights & Stories From America’s Non-Profit Leaders, is about nonprofit game-changers who have found solutions to some of the world’s greatest, most vexing societal problems.
