Audio: How to Create a Path for Effective Leadership

In this episode of "What’s the Big Idea?" Ronald Riggio, a professor of leadership and organizational psychology and former director of the Kravis Leadership Institute at Claremont McKenna College, discusses approaches nonprofits can take to foster leadership development within their organizations.

Organizations play a role in shaping leaders, and motivating employees with the idea that everyone shares the leadership is just the start. After all, Mr. Riggio says, leadership isn’t just something that the leader owns; it’s something everyone does together.

Allison Fine, a nonprofit leader, author, and expert on technology and communications, discusses research from other fields that applies to nonprofit work. Ms. Fine incorporates suggestions and questions from readers into her podcasts and invites you to email her at Look for new installments once a month.
