Ambassador Insights

“Ambassador Insights” (available for download below) are drawn from online discussions of the Leap of Reason Ambassadors Community, a private community of nonprofit experts, leader practitioners, and instigators. The community’s purpose is to:

  • inspire, motivate, and support nonprofit and public sector leaders (and their stakeholders) to build great organizations for greater societal impact
  • increase the expectation and adoption of high performance as the path toward that end.

“Ambassador Insights” are curated from the online discussions and you can learn why and how they are developed here. While “Ambassador Insights” do not represent the views of all ambassadors, those who offered input have vetted and approved their contributions. Each “Ambassador Insight” has also been presented to the full Leap of Reason Ambassadors Community for review.

They are intended to help provide context, resources, and information and are by no means an exhaustive review of available resources. Though we strive to keep this information current and accurate, errors can occur. They are therefore provided “as is” with no guarantee of accuracy, completeness, or timeliness.
