The Leap of Reason Ambassadors Community is a private community of nonprofit thought leaders and practitioners. Ambassadors are experts, leader practitioners, and instigators. They bring depth of knowledge and experience, passion for inspiring others to build great organizations for greater societal impact, an insistence that what we do and fund “works,” an understanding that mission and metrics are inextricably linked, and a commitment to increasing the expectation and adoption of high performance in the field.
The purpose of the community is to: inspire, motivate, and support nonprofit and public sector leaders (and their stakeholders) to build great organizations for greater societal impact, and increase the expectation and adoption of high performance as the path toward that end.
The community follows thoughtful and deliberate processes for considering new ambassadors. Potential candidates are suggested by ambassadors, and then a Working Group (WG) assesses whether the candidate substantially meets these criteria; has a strong, even passionate, affinity with the community’s purpose; and is a good fit with the community. The WG, with Ambassadors Steve Butz of the Superstar Foundation and Sam Cobbs of First Place for Youth serving as co-leads, oversees and facilitates these processes, but ultimately all proposed candidates are cleared by the entire community. Building trusted relationships within the community takes time but results in an aligned group working together to inspire and support great organizations for greater societal impact. You can learn more about the identification/selection, invitation/onboarding, and engagement processes here.
