The 2017 CNE Nonprofit Survey showed that established nonprofit leaders’ abilities increased in most areas over the last year and named the ability to use their wisdom and skills in their organization as a strength! However, both established and emerging leaders noted a decline in their ability to balance work with other aspects of life and saw room for improvement to address the bigger challenges they face.
