We rely on the social sector to meet urgent needs and address pervasive problems, and we cannot afford for organizations to deliver anything other than high performance. But what does “high performance” look like?

In the past year, a group of leaders has come together around the mission to inspire, motivate, and support nonprofit and public sector leaders to build great organizations for greater societal impact. Convened by Leap of Reason author Mario Morino, this group of “Leap Ambassadors” has collaboratively created the Performance Imperative, which offers a definition of high performance and lays out seven pillars of high-performance organizations.

Hear how nonprofits, foundations, and public agencies can use the Performance Imperative as their North Star to guide them on a journey of continuous improvement to achieve better, more sustainable outcomes for communities, children, adults and families.
